We adopted a 5 year old furball last year who happens to be the sweetest cat I've ever come across. He loves to sit on laps, cuddle in bed, bump his head to us randomly and basically has never ever scratched or bitten even when first time strangers pay a visit and play rough with him. He is a champ.
Unfortunately the lady of the house is allergic to cats and we are trying to find a way to lessen her symptoms and giving him away is not a solution.
She is taking antihistamines daily but sometimes they don't work well. Besides, we are not sure of the long term side effects of regular antihistamine use. We are going to limit his access to the bedroom to at least have a less allergen filled sleeping space.
Things that we are considering:
1. Remove carpeting from the house to keep it cleaner.
2. Get a HEPA bagless vacuum cleaner.
3. Get a HEPA air purifier.
4. Trim the cat's hair 1-2 times a year? Not sure if this is good for him, if not we won't do it.
Any recommendations for the vacuum cleaner and air purifier for this specific purpose?
Here are the obligatory photos of the culprit:
