Sinus probs
I suffer from hayfever and my kitten sleeps by my face every night. I am taking pills for the hayfever but wonder if it's sufficient because I'm getting headaches just above my nose.

Also, i have to sleep with my kitten in my room and the door closed at night. This means that his litter box is there too... can this be harmful?

Dear Sonja
Try keeping the litterbox in the bathroom - it is not healthy to have it in the same room where you are sleeping. Try teaching the kitten to rather sleep by your feet or at your side. I am also allergic to cats and allow mine on the bed but not near my face!
