According to an article in the May 2012 issue of Good Housekeeping magazine, if your kids have other allergies it will make them three to four times more prone to react to a cat allergy. A recent European survey of nearly 6,300 people were documented in this study. But there is a solution:
1. None of the kitty adoters who enforced a no-cat zone in their bedrooms became allergic, compared to 5% of those who gave Fluffy free run of the house.
2. Adults adopting cats were 40% less likely to become allergic if they'd had one as a child.
