Here's a few more tips for managing allergies and cats:

-keep her nails trimmed, and her fur brushed
-feed high quality food (ideally, an all canned grain-free diet)
-bathe the kitty once a month (or, use a damp cloth, to rub her down once a week. Make sure you rub the opposite direction of her fur growth as well, get her used to it, but most of the dander stays near the skin and the only way to wipe it off is to get down there.)
-Place towels in her favorite sleeping spots, and wash them once a week.
-Sweep and mop regularly, and vacuum using a HEPA filter vacuum. (HEPA filters will trap the dander, rather than just blowing it back into the air like a regular vacuum will do).
