In brief: May Have To Give Up

You can try medication (antihistamines and/or steroid nose sprays), neti pot, wash the cat regularly to remove dander, clean and vacuum the house frequently to reduce the dander in the house, limit the range where the cat can roam in the house, ban the cat from areas you spend the most time (bedroom), etc.

While avoidance is best, if that is not possible and medications does not help, allergy shots are another option. See an allergist for evaluation.
