In brief: Immunotherapy
If you have a cat allergy, that means that your body has developed a sensitivity to the cat allergen, fel d1.
The only way to "fight" this allergy is to start immunotherapy, as this will develop a "natural" tolerance to the cat allergy. There are no other alternatives available. Medications will help control the symptoms (essentially suppressing the symptoms while you are on medication).

Agree that allergy injections are the best long term treatment to control cat allergy. It is a little time consuming, but well worth it. It will decrease symptoms, decrease medication use and even after allergy injections are stopped, the relief can persist.
