Allergic to new kitten

by Amy F.
(Pennsylvania)

We have a 3 year old seal point, a 2 year old lynx point, and have just recently purchased a 9 week old lilac point. I have never had allergies of any kind to the first two, who we both raised from kittens, but it seems that I am somehow allergic to the new addition! Just wondering if anyone else has had this happen to them, or knows if it will go away once she gets her adult fur? Also wondering if it has to do with her being a lilac point? I really cant understand it! Thank you!

allergic to one cat over another
by: Anonymous

if you were not allergic to the other cats you may actually be allergic to the flea and tick medicines. Depending where you got the cat they may use advantage or similar which are meant to protect for at least a month and may be around longer. Hopefully you have already had the problem resolve but a bath does not remove the flea and tick treatment. Good luck

kitten fur
by: Amy F.

I know my allergies are coming from her because when she spends time napping in another room, I feel fine. But when she wakes up and jumps on my lap to snuggle with me, my nose instantly gets stuffy and itchy, and I start to sneeze. We've had her for a month now, and the other cats have given her plenty of their own personal baths, but I haven't tried an actual bath yet. I'm hoping that once she gets her adult fur it will go away!

Maybe it is seasonal allergies

Give the kitten a bath.I cannot image being allergic to one over the others.Have you changed or bought anything new in your house or car? It could be anything surrounding you.Have you eaten anything different? Used any kind of frangerance or cleaner? Keep us posted.
