In brief: Allergy shots

An allergist can test you for various allergies and formulate allergy shots (immunotherapy) that will slowly build up your immune system's responce to those allergens (tolerance) over time (years).
Cat allergy responds well to this therapy, when given by a properly trained allergist that follows the acaai/aaaai guidelines. See an allergist for testing and to discuss therapy options.
