I have had cats for years with no allergic reactions. The last two days I visited two humane adoption society places to adopt a kitten to keep my older cat company. Today in revisiting and playing with a couple of cats I developed allergies. When I went home I played with my cat and the allergies returned. What could have caused this and should I adopt a new cat if I somehow now have cat allergies?
Sometimes cats at the humane society aren't very clean. This can cause a worse reaction. Also, some cats have more dander than others and are more difficult to be around. I'd go ahead and get another cat. If you are worried about allergies start taking an antihystemine like Zyrtec every day
