Before I adopted Luna, my father claimed to be allergic to cats. I don't live with my father year-round, only visit for several weeks during the summer. Anyway, after getting Luna, it turned out to be me, and not my father, who was in fact allergic to her. I was very stressed out and upset for a few weeks while I battled hay-fever and an asthma flare-up. Thankfully, as I suspected, it all cleared up and I have developed an quasi-immunity to Luna's dander. I also purchased a True Hepa filter for my bedroom, which I probably should have had anyway, being an asthmatic. I am fine now. If anything, I have a very mild allergy to her, but nothing like it was when I first got her. I think with allergies it depends on how severe your allergies are. If you are the type of person who can walk into a home and can tell a cat lives there because your allergies start to act up, I would think twice. I have never experienced such a reaction to other people's cats. I actually might be allergic to Luna's litter...I'm not even sure to be honest. It's not like I bury my head in her fur and then sneeze or experience a skin reaction of any sort. There is not that kind of direct connection. Good luck!
