hi, I am allergic to many things so most likely a cat too, They are not severe allergies and I have looked after many pets successfully. I know there are hypoallergenic pets but they aren't always that, are dear and not the breed i want - temperament, health etc. I want to just get a British shorthair and I know you can still live with a cat with allergies. What are your tips for dealing with allergies and owning a cat. Other than hypoallergenic or no cat! Only answer if you have experienced its success or know someone who has pls.
