  • Yup. I am allergic to all animal hair. Cats and horses are the worst. I have a dog, and have had one most of my life. I am pretty much okay as long as I wash my hands after I pet him.

  • It's a good thing none of us have allergies. I'd be hard pressed to get rid of my animals.

  • I am allergic to cats, but I would be a very unhappy mama if I couldn't have cats. I have to make sure she doesn't touch my face, and allergy pills help. It's worth the swollen eyes, and hives

  • None of us are allergic, but my husbands aunt is allergic to the cat. So before she came to visit I started washing my cat in Dander Destroyer and used the furmiator on him every day. She came for 2 weeks and never had any sort of reaction. So I guess it was a combo of dander destroyer and furminator that kept it all down for her.

  • I am not allergic (as far as I know) but if I were my pets would stay.

  • I had reactions to one of my cats when I was pregnant with my daughter but regular bathing, about every 4-6 weeks, kept my from reacting.
