My husband and I were adopted by a 3 legged feral kitten last weekend.  We named her Eileen.     She's the most adorable and affectinonate little thing.  I didn't notice my strong allergy to her until last night.  I've taken 24 hour Claritan and it's helping but only a little.  I heard there's a remedy available at any doctor's office, but what is it and what side effect implications can there be for As?

Or is there a holistic approach in the way of an herb or something I can take?

My husband is Type O and is not having a reaction to her and never has had to cats.  I didn't when I was a teenager, but did in my 20s and am now too.

You could bath the kittie, and take some Quercetin.

Andrea, I don't think this kittie would sit still long enough to be bathed.  It only took 24 hours for her dander to start bothering me after I gave her her first sponge bath after we took her in.

I don't have the allergy book.  I have almost every one except the allergy book.  And when you say meanwhile follow the protocols, exactly what protocols are you referring to?  The link you included only pointed to supplements.

Thanks, Ladies!

One thing you can do is wash your hands every time you touch the cat. Never touch your face right after touching the cat. It is best to not let the cat sleep in the same room with you. I find that, even allergic to cats, I get used to my own cats over time compared to how I react to other people's cats. Still, I have to take care not to hold them too much.

Thanks Lola - this nonnie would also like to know how not to be allergic to black cat hair - other coloured hair seems to be OK - go figure.

Is there a minimum time you would have to take these supplements before they take effect? Would it be a temporary system boost? Or would new cat = supplements for life of cat?

Someone needs to come out with an anti cat allergy supplement, so many people suffer with them and love cats.
Quercetin will work but it takes time.

I've always been allergic to animal fur & feathers...badly so!! Only found out why my breathing was so bad when I moved away from home to get married...no, I didn't take the family dog with me!!
Personally, I couldn't live with them in the house.

Take her to the vet or to the groomer. When I found the marshmallow, the vet gave her a flea and tick bath, de wormed her and cleaned her all up nicely.

My husband and I were adopted by a 3 legged feral kitten last weekend.
Or is there a holistic approach in the way of an herb or something I can take?


I use a body balancing technique to reduce the effects of the allergy.

Body Energy Balance to be used when an allergic reaction is happening to reduce the symptoms immediately.  

May be repeated as often as every 5 minutes to keep reactions in check.  

Used repeatedly (1 time per hour during awake periods) will slowly, but permanently, reduce allergic reaction to environmental allergies.

NOTE:  For all measurements, 1 inch (body) = distance between patients thumb joint and thumb tip

Think pleasant thoughts while gently massaging the acupressure points in the following order for 1 minute on each point.  The point should not hurt during the massage.
1)     Right hand, soft connecting tissue between thumb and forefinger, about 1 inch from hand edge.
2)     Right elbow, top of crease.
3)     Left elbow, top of crease.
4)     Left hand, soft connecting tissue between thumb and forefinger, about 1 inch from hand edge.
5)     Left foot, foot tissue between big toe and second toe bones, about 1 inch from foot edge between big toe and second toe.
6)     Right foot, foot tissue between big toe and second toe bones, about 1 inch from foot edge between big toe and second toe.
7)     Right hand, soft connecting tissue between thumb and forefinger, about 1 inch from hand edge.
     Rub hands together, as if washing them, for about 15 seconds after all points are massaged.

Hope this helps...

We find that people visiting us (we have 5 cats and a dog)who are allergic get almost immediate relief with tincture of fresh nettles (make sure it says on the bottle that nettles were fresh when tinctured--dry ones don't have active ingredient). Nettles has an anti-histamine effect.

We also make sure they get the bedroom that we keep closed off so the cats can't get through.

I am assuming you are BTD/GTD compliant-- I know a lot of our friends who are allergic have a lot fewer symptoms if they don't do wheat/dairy. Most of them are Os. Since we don't serve much of either at our house it helps.
