|Cat Allergies and Partners

I have a boyfriend and I'm very aware how much he wants a cat in the future. He's agreed to a poodle for a dog... because I love them, and I'm allergic, and he was won over by our little poodle's intelligence. However, he doesn't like the hairless cats, and I've heard that since its the saliva it's no guarantee anyway. |
For most of my life I've been 'brainwashed' by my parents to think cats are just annoying to have as pets, and I'm coming around to the idea that they're not, or at least, not hugely.
Can someone tell me about allergy tablets or injections? How much do they cost? How much do they hurt, or how much do they work? My allergies aren't severe. I'm actually considering them now, when before I was like 'once a week forever?? That's ridiculous, can't do that' and I've just been told that it's only once a week for the first 6 months, then every 2 weeks, then it gets less. Gives me some hope that I can make this work and my boyfriend can be happy. :)
I'm also not at all a fan of the idea of having cat hair all over the house and in my craft work. (usually polymer clays and various fabrics.) Are there any sorts of cats that shed less (especially if they aren't hugely fancy expensive cats)? Do cats shed all the time? Tell me about cats and doing craft and keeping cats away from things or keeping stuff away from cat hair?
