In brief: You can"t
Wanting a cat is okay, having one in your home is not.
The amount of animal dander increases as the animal stays in the home, leading to progressively more severe symptoms. Medications may help, but in general, symptoms will increase over time and may progress from nasal complaints to asthma.
