Cats Protection Holds Myth-Busting Mission, Erases Fears On Pet Ownership & More!

Update Date: May 07, 2016 07:11 AM EDT

Owning a cat seems harmless though there are health-related concerns by some folks particularly tied up with cat fur. Such would normally affect people with allergies to such, asthma of which is perhaps the known problem. With that in mind, such hinders people from ever considering owning a cat due to health reasons. There are however some alternatives to break down that barrier which should pave the way for folks to own a cat.

Here are some of the top tips from Cats Protection for people plagued with allergies but would want to own a feline:

  • Use antihistamine tablets or nasal sprays
  • Use hardwood floors instead rather than carpets; opt for blinds rather than curtains
  • Avoid woollen clothing
  • Create cat-free zones
  • Open windows for at least one hour daily. Stire litter tray and cat beds away from air vents
  • Clean rooms regularly where cats frequently stay
  • Practice proper grooming for your cat, preferably daily
  • Regularly wash your cat’s bed
  • Use Bio-life Petal Cleanse

Most of this will be tackled at the Just V Show, the UK’s biggest cat charity that intends to bust myths on potential cat ownership for the ones with allergies, vegans and vegetarians. Cats Protection will be on hand to handle the cat myths on July 8 to 10 in Olympia, London.

The event is open to anyone, including folks from the Allergy & Free From and the Love Natural, Love You shows, which will also be on hand at the same venue.

“Allergy suffers often assume cat ownership is not for them and that they will never be able to enjoy the companionship of owning a cat,” explains Cats Protection’s Events Manager Emma Osborne.

She adds: “But over recent years allergies have become much more understood and there are now all sorts of ways to help minimise any reactions caused by cat fur. With the right advice and by following some simple steps, it is possible for many allergy sufferers to enjoy all the joy and fun of cat ownership.”

The event will get plenty of help from staff who hope to dispel and educate folks on hand about the myths of owning a cat.

Cats Protection is the UK’s leading feline welfare charity and helps over 200,000 cats each year through its national network of over 250 volunteer-run branches and 32 centres.
