Here’s a scenario, you adore cats, you have a cat or cats, and suffer from cat allergies. So, what do you do? Give the cat to a new loving owner, right? Wrong! You keep the cat, because you’re a crazy cat lady/man, and will deal with sneezing a thousand times a day, and blurry watery eyes every day. That my friends, is true love. If you’re one of these special people, than these daily struggles should ring a bell…
