I have a cat. I cannot even begin to think about giving her away. One of the things that have helped me the most in dealing with allergy is giving her biweekly baths. She hates me for a few days, but it cuts down on dandruff. I also give her a diet with a lot of fish. This helps keep her coat moisturized and healthy.
