|Good article, P.C.!
Also, while some people can be ok with certain cats, they might still be highly allergic to others. Hubby is allergic to some kitties, but is ok with ours. We do brush them a whole lot, with me usually doing the brushing, so the dander issue is handled somewhat (as dander will sometimes be associated with shedding, and brushing daily will often reduce the shedding, and thus make the dander not be everywhere in the house).
There's also degrees of allergy among sufferers. My MIL is allergic to cats, but as long as she washes her hands after petting them, and does not allow them to sleep in the same room, she's ok. One of our friends is so allergic to cats that he has gone into anaphylactic shock (which is a pretty scary experience for all involved) unless he takes medication beforehand, and even when he does he strictly avoids interacting with cats.
Red eyes and sneezing are not drama, they are real symptoms. If I were you, I'd plan your social activities with your friends so that you spend more time out and/or at her house than you do at yours. That's probably the best solution.
