In brief: See an allergist
An allergist can prescribe a comprehensive plan for pre-treatment with medications prior to visiting your mother-in-law that should help you tolerate the cat exposure for the length of your visit.

In brief: Sorry it is an issue
Not to get invloved with your family problems.
It could be a valid excuse to go less.Just kidding..It depends what type of symptoms you develop and if you have other allergies...If they are mild you can try taking antihistamines a few days prior..Perhaps prescription nasal sprays as well...If you also have asthma it becomes more difficult and you should discuss it with your allergist. Good luck.
