Can you be allergic to one cat and not the other?

The answer to this question is “yes.” When I pet my older cat Mollie and then touch my eyes, my eyes will get red and very itchy almost immediately. If I pet Millie, my younger cat and then touch my eye, nothing at all happens. Our allergic reactions are from the saliva which is in the dander produced by your feline friend. Some cats produce more dander than others. If you have a reaction from touching or petting your cat, wash your hands immediately after touching her. Brush your cat regularly to keep the dander down and wipe her down with a damp cloth. This will not solve your allergy problem but it can help it a bit.

Remember, your pets count!
