|My Meowma used to Groom Dogs, she did that for 12 years and she used to be a Vet Tech before that. Now she is a Pet Nutrition Specialist for the Nutro Company.
She does those in store demos, part time. She lives with 3 big dogs. They sleep in her bed and sit in her lap. She had some allergy testing done about a year ago and along with a lot of things outside, they tell her that she is allergic to dogs!
Well she started on allergy shots, at once a week and is now down to once a month. She ALSO lives on Loratadine , two 10 mg Tabs, every 24 hours. But now since the pollen count has been way down, she has not felt the need for the tabs. BUT!! Unlike you, she is NOT severely allergic to the dogs. There are so many things here in Florida, to be allergic to!
I do like the idea of getting some of the Cat fur to see how you react. But first and foremost is youR and your roommate's health. I would talk to your and your roommate's Allergy Dr.'s FIRST! Then you both, can make an educated decision. But it does sound like you have decided to get a kitty anyways. Please make sure that if anything extreme comes up, that you can always take this kitty back to the place you get it from.
Best of luck and PLEASE keep us all advised as to what you decide to do and how things go. BEST OF LUCK!
