Default Oh, no. Kitty has to go.

After all this, my allergies have re-awakened. Severely.
I'm already on allergy medication.

My neighbor will take her in, but says she will declaw her on day one.
So I don't want that.

But I won't be able to live all winter this miserable.

Mitch. Ever heard of allergy medicine? I have two cats, am allergic to
cats, and take Claritin (over-the-counter) and am just fine.

Either you want the cat or you don't. I'm really getting sick of this
crap.

Get one that works for animal dander allergies. Ask you doctor.

Or take the cat to a no-kill shelter along with copies of the entire
saga as posted to this group.

And for God's sake don't tell us if you send her to some *sshole who
will declaw.

Mitch, I don't know how severe your symptoms are but we also have
allergies/asthma in our family. While my daughter does have some allergy to
cats she has much worse allergies to pollen. What's the pollen count right
now in your area? (Go to www.pollen.com and you can sign up for this as an
email alert.) Also, it's winter and the wood smoke in our city from
fireplaces is a definite problem, so bad, in fact, that the city has
allocated "burn and no-burn" days. In other words, you could have several
factors here. Also, living in Albuquerque, we have a major dust here and
that also is a factor.

What really has helped our family a lot is to get HEPA air cleaners for the
bedrooms and we also got one for our den area. Initially our allergist
recommended them; HEPA filters remove something like 98% of all airborn
pollutants from the air. You can get them at Target plus their replacement
filters (We have the Holmes and Environcaire brands). They do cost but are
extremely worth it and would be beneficial for your allergies in any case.
In the past, our insurance company paid for one for my son when the doctor
said he needed to have one in his bedroom; don't know if that would work for
you.

After all you've gone through to help this poor kitty, try and see if any of
these suggestions may help you. Worst case and you have to find a home for
her, do the right thing and find her someone who is patient, kind, will not
declaw -- you know what to do...

In any case, lots of encouragement and purrs from our family for you to be
able to work this situation out .
hope this helps,
Christine Burel

I have severe allergies to my three cats. I went to the allergist and he
recommended Clarinex, a steroidal nasal spray like Flonase, an air filter
with a hepa filter, and encasing of my mattress and pillows. When I did all
these things, ALL my symptoms disappeared! Hope you can give it a try and
not give your cat to that inhuman neighbor. Good luck
