  • That is so sad for you. Such a shame a vaccine can't be invented to stop cat allergies.

  • Hi it's the animal dander which you are allergic too. You can buy a spray from the vets to control it. It might be worth trying that before you get rid of your beloved cat. x

  • Have you talked to your doctor about antihistamines - my daughter has a very bad allergy to cats and takes antihistamines. My husband has severe COPD and started with hay fever this year and has been prescribed antihistamines - they seem to help with his allergies. Take care, lots of love TAD xxx

  • Sad for you becraftygirl but it is for the best as your symptoms may well improve. Do you have a friend or any family that the cat could go to? Hope you find a good home for him soon and feel better then.


  • Oh how very sad that you have to get rid of your best friend. Do hope you can find a really good home for him/her. Bless you. It is awful to have to give a way a beloved pet. Hope it makes a big difference to you.

    Have you checked all the side effects listed for your medications? Also, ask your Doc - some side effects are rare and may not be noted. Also I have had a side effect from a medication which had to be reported as I was one of the first to have it. Since then it has gone on to be noted for this side effect!

  • Did you have a cat allergy before you got COPD? There are so many other causes. could you take your cat to a groomer to be bathed regularly? as that would cut down the dander. Or you could wear a mask when around your cat.

    I would move heaven and earth to keep my George. The doctor advised me to get rid of him when he was a puppy. Keeping him clean, flea free and thoroughly brushed worked. Now he goes to a professional groomer and has his coat stripped regularly.

    My husband helped a lot. We have a vacuum cleaner with a Hepa filter and all hard floors.

  • Terribly sad if you have to re home your cat. I am allergic to cats and take antihistamines if I go somewhere that has cats. Hope things work out for you xx
