While I won't be doing any kitten adoption until my kids and I return from a short trip that we'll be taking in a couple of weeks, we dropped by the local animal shelter this AM. There was "like infinity" of kittens there but, after staying a little while, I got the itchy nostrils, itchy eyes thing going and my son broke out in a nice facial hive. My daughter, Julie Newmar, had no reaction at all. Now, none of my kids or I have had any problems with cats in any friends' homes, so I'm guessing that with all those kittens and cats in the shelter, there was a very high level of Fel D1 antigen floating around the joint. Have any of the cat fanciers here had a similar event, where they had some allergic symptoms in the shelter but nothing once the lil' critter was home?
