Sitting inside watching the snow — yes, it’s pretty! — while breathing in dander, dandruff and cat fluff? Windows closed. Heat pouring out of vents. Dry skin and dry nose. Perfect time for major allergy flare-ups.
Grooming decreases shed fur, cleans off dandruff, and washes away dander (temporarily). If I had cat allergies, I’d be on meds and would have my cat groomed at least every 3 months. If you can’t schedule a cat grooming, try wiping your cat with fragrance-free cat wipes. Do that once a day.
