yes, you can. My sister has had her cat for 18 years, and has no symptoms. She comes to my house, and my kitties go to her, sniffing to find all the smells from HER cat, and within 5 minutes, her eyes are watering, and she's sneezing and coughing like crazy.
Her allergist said that it's essentially like taking shots for allergies, you get "used" to the allergens, slowly, a little bit at a time, and new allergens will set off a big episode.
