This is exactly what I was thinking. I'm allergic to cats, and I have 4. This is the only time of yeara that my allergies bother me. It is because I am allergic to every kind of tree and grass there is on earth. The problem is that right now everything is blooming. All of the pollin mixed with the cats pushes my allergies over the edge.
If it comes down to it, you may have keep the kitties out of the bed room. For me morning is always the worst, I know if I was deligent and did not let them sleep with me it would be better. A few other things are to make sure you have a good vaccuum that cleans up allergens, an air purifier that has a heppa filter helps. I also have a dust mite cover on my mattress and pillows because dust mites were by far my worst allergy.
Your boyfriends allergy doesn't sound too bad, and maybe doing a few of these things will make him comfortable enough to want to stay.
that you find what works for him.
