Are you a cat or a dog person?
Personally, I think I am a dog person. I like dogs more than cats, maybe because I am asthmatic. I find it difficult to get and stay near cats because I am scared that it will trigger my asthma.
I know some people who are allergic to cats. OMG, they sneeze non-stop whenever there’s a cat around.
If you are allergic to furry animals too, then, read along.
Here are 10 ways to fight cat allergies.

“If I know I’m going to somebody’s house who has a pet, I just take a pill 20 minutes before I go,” says Alejandra Soto, 36, who has been allergic to cats, dogs, horses, and pretty much any animal with hair since childhood.
Because she doesn’t always know whether someone has a pet before she visits, Soto adds, she always has an antihistamine in her purse.
“It’s really rare that I’ll be exposed and it will catch me by surprise,” says Soto, who directs communications and outreach for the New York City Mayor’s Office to Combat Domestic Violence.
