Cat Dander Can Trigger Allergies

Wednesday, June 12, 2019
posted by Jim Murphy

You wake up in the morning with your eyes tearing and as you grasp for the tissues, you wonder what’s making you feel so miserable. Your cat sleeps with you but you don’t make the connection at first. It’s the cat’s dander that you’re allergic to not his fur.  Cats lick themselves and leave behind deposits of saliva that dry and flake off as dander.  Dander contain a protein known as Fel-D1 which is spread as your cat licks himself. Here are some times to reduce your exposure.

  • If you have allergy  medication, always make sure the take it.
  • Wash your hands and face after petting your cat or touching his cat bed or other belongings.
  • If you hold your cat, use a towel to put him on or put on an extra shirt that you could throw in the laundry after holding him.
  • Keep your bedroom door shut and don’t allow your cat to sleep in your bed.
