Hi, new to the forum here. I mostly have mild asthma since a child. Knowing that cats are usually one of my triggers we have recently got a gorgeous Siberian cat, having researched they tend to have less of the protein causing reactions, wheezing etc. Unfortunately she has given me more asthma symptoms though and I am regularly tight chested. Having seen my doctor, I am trying out daily antihistamines in the last week which so far are helping.
I'm really keen to find out stories of anyone that has experienced a natural desensitisation to a pet cat where their asthma symptoms got better over time? And how long could this take months or even years? I am hoping there is a chance this could happen for me. For now I'm seeing how I feel on a weekly basis and becoming more attached to the cat!
