Staring at a cat is a no-no, so when someone who doesn't like cats, ignores the cat, they are practicing good cat behavior, so the cat comes up to YOU, thinking, you are behaving so politely. That is why, cats always go to the people who are ignoring them. Just thought you might like to know. Sorry for the allergies. The cat produces something in their saliva that causes the irritation and black cat's are supposed to produce the most (though, I don't know why...)so you shouldn't come and visit my house. Black cats are the least adoptable, so I have two misfits here plus a tuxedo brother. They wish you well!
Thanks for the info, so basically it's a Catch 22 for those allergic to cats! You ignore them because you're allergic which makes them try to seduce you... I had two cats while growing up and loved them. I would wrap one of them up in a blanket since kittenhood and sleep with him. Once he grew it didn't work but it was nice to know he liked it because he'd be by my door every morning :)
