In brief: Several available

Avoidance is the most effective, but that means not having a cat in the house and limiting contact.
Antihistamines can help minimize symptoms, but nasal steroid sprays are the most effective. For the best long term control allergy injections are used. An allergist can assist in finding the right medication regimen and determine if a person is a good candidate for allergy shots.

In brief: Allergy shots

Evaluation by an allergist would be needed and if the allergy was severe enough, shots would likely be recommended.
