Oh goodness, someone in the house just started sneezing! Try these things before you are tempted to return the cat. Once you’ve exhausted these and other resources, we will CERTAINLY take the cat back from you.

First of all, switch litters! The sandier the litter, the more it may irritate human noses. Use the cheapest granular type, (there’s plenty of litter alternatives that are better for you and your cat – cedar litter, recycled newspaper litter, wheat litter, etc.). We have learned that many times a person is allergic to the sand in the litter, not the cat. Cat jump in the litter box, kick litter all over, including their fur and then sit on your chest – it may not be the CAT you are allergic to, it may be the DUST!
Other things to try:
- Oxymed soothing cat wipes
- Nutro cat food (some cats are allergic to the less nutritious cat foods – Nutro helps with their coat and allows less shedding – Garbage in, garbage out.
- Simple Solution Allergy Relief (moistened cloths)
- Lambert Kay Shed Relief
- Linatone Shed Relief
You can also add a small spoonful of olive oil to your cat’s wet food – we’ve heard that helps keep their coat shiny, smooth and dandruff free.
Check the internet for additional information – there are plenty of supplements sold which are administered to the cat, not just the person to help with pet dander.
