Good point, BK!!! I hadn't even thought about the saliva.
But getting back...I hopoe I didn't discourage you! An allergy med might actually work. Like I said, the people I know who have allergies have said that my cats were easier on the allergies. So that just might work -- in conjuction with building up a tolerance.
My grandmother was actually allergic to cats, but she loved them. And she always had one. And she was actually fine with the cat we had when I was growing up. (My mom and I lived with my grandmother.) She built up a tolerance. (That cat was a domestic long hair, too, I should say!) And it was actually to the point where she didn't even take allergy meds.
And again...Russian Blues are really sweet cats. They're really shy with company, but they'reextremely affectionate with their immediate family and with people they know. Both of mine have followed me around endlessly, offer lots of head-butts and kisses and they love to play. And they're super-smart. Felix played Fetch, and Coop just learned!
Both of mine were actually shelter babies, so you can find them at the shelter. I got Felix from a friend who adopted him from a shelter. And Coop came from the shelter last year after Felix passed.
And honestly, they've been the most rewarding little boys ever.
Good luck, and if you want to paw-mail me, please do! I love talking about Blues.
Hugs & purrs,
Coop & Coop's Mom
