Oh, Sara, I'm sad to tell you that the shots do work, but you still have to avoid the allergens. At least be sure that the cat doesn't come in your bedroom, and try to allergy-proof that room as much as possible. Remove draperies and rugs, put allergy-proof covers on mattresses and pillows, and be sure to dust regularly with a slightly damp cloth, so you pick up the dust instead of just scattering it.
Good luck with your testing.
