Cat allergy

DH and I are visiting his sister in February for six days. They have three cats but I am allergic. I take Allegra but will probably add Flonase for that week. I also could bring my Neti pot. We hope to be outside much of the time (they live in Florida). Any other ideas to help mitigate the effects? We just love their company and cannot wait to visit the new place but I fear iíll be congested and sneezing all week!

If you can keep your sleeping quarters cat free it will help a lot. Ask in advance that after they clean and ready the guest room, they shut the door to keep kitties out. Then you have at least 8 hours away from the allergens.

so you may want to take some cleansing eye drops as well.

You have given me some good ideas. Thanks for your help. We will try and spend most of our time outside. We will be driving to Key west after 5-6 days and staying in a non pet friendly hotel for the second week.

I was going to say the same thing as Lisa53. Let them know about the allergy and ask if they would be able toke the guest room door closed before you get there.

How are you traveling? If you are traveling by car you could bring your own pillow and blanket.

My dd has a dear friend who house sits for her dog and cat occasionally. This friend is allergic to cats. DD make sure that the house is totally and immaculately clean and that the bedroom is very sterile- Mattress cover, clean sheets, clean comforter, etc. with the door closed. Her friend seems to do fine. Good luck. Have a fun trip.
