Cat Allergies-anything to help??

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
This weekend, my mom, her best friend and my aunt are coming to stay with me at my apartment this weekend . My aunt is allergic to cats, so Harley is having a slumber party from Thurs-Sunday at our neighbors house!

Anyways-my question, is there anything that I can buy (Febreeze-ANYTHING) that will get rid of the cat dander/and such so my aunt doesnt have such a bad allergic reaction even tho Harley won't be there? She is bringing her allergy meds with her so it wont be so bad, but I want to try to make it as fresh/allergy free for her as I can!

Any suggestions would be oh so helpful!!

Vacuum every single day until they get there, but avoid vacuuming on the day they're going to arrive. Use the vacuum's attachments on all of your furniture (couches, chairs, loveseats).

I have a good friend who is highly allergic to cats. I made sure to vacuum like crazy, and when we invited her to my husband's birthday party (at our apartment) she didn't seem to have any problems.

I have the same problem when my Mom comes to visit. So I just vaccum everything I can and spray Frebreeze Allergy and hope for the best . You are so lucky, Harley can have a sleep over with friends. My girls have to stay in the apartment, I have no one I would trust them with close by. Mom brings her allergy meds so it's usually not too bad.

Great! I'm going to vaccuum as MUCH as a I possibly can (without giving poor Harley a heart attack!)

Does the Febreeze stuff really work? I think I might try that, do you just spray it all over everything, like everyday while I'm vaccuuming and such?

I'm so happy that Harley gets to have a slumber party this weekend, we have great neighbors that just love to take him when we are out of town! He gets very spoiled when he's away from home!!

it's funny but Ted Brogan doesn't give me allergies but my cat Brown does, but what I do to make things better is give her a bath and brush her, I bathe Ted too sometimes.

I'll go to hug her sometimes and I get all sneezy and red ichy eyes quickly.

I agree. The vacumn is the best solution to your problem.

I vaccum and febreeze everything for myself seveal times a week (I wear a mask, but I'm the one with allergies!). The advice to not vaccum on the day she comes is very good- you don't want the floating dander and hair particles to be everywhere!
