    Hi there, is the cat still living in the home or are you moving into a home that used to have a cat?

  • Clean well and clean often. The person with the allergies should see a proper allergist as there is medication on the market that will alleviate the symptoms.

    Cuc,. You need to vacuum everyday, and use a hepa filter. Try buying an air cleaner that you can leave out where you have the most traffic. Keep dusting. Aloha!
