Claritin is a wonderful drug - you can get the generic version at Sam's Club for about $16 for 300 tabs. He'll want to take it before he gets to your place - spiking and dropping histimine levels will leave him fatigued, so take it before seeing kitty to keep histimine levels even.

When I still lived in an apartment and had no say in the carpeting question, I got a carpet cleaner. It was about 125.00 for the smallest upright on the market at the time and a great investment. I cleaned carpet usually 2x a month. I also used a hepa air cleaner in the bedroom since we spend so much of our lives sleeping.

If he is allergy prone - check out what else gives him a slight reaction and get rid of it. Allergens are like building blocks, they just keeping adding up - your body reacts not just to individual allergens but the cumlative effect of all allergens in the environment. In my case, it was fabric softener so I switched to dryer sheets. Dryer sheets don't prevent my cat allergy (I have 3 furballs) but using them means my body is fighting one less thing.

Tammy is right, in time he might become used to kitty and the allergies diminish - and for those of us who aren't so lucky, with a few adjustments on the housework, life with kitty is very possible.

Best of luck!
