The best thing to do would, if you would like one of these animals, is try spending time at the location the animal resides where it's allergens would be the most pronounced. Many people with severe allergies cannot spend any length of time in a place where there is heavy cat traffic.
If that doesn't cause a reaction, then it is a good time to try handling the cat to see if that brings any physical reactions, such as swelling eyes or throat, hives or any abnormal swelling. Bring a dose of antihistamine such as Benadryl with you for this test. Try it over a period of time as the reaction can become more severe with exposure.
If all goes well at this point and you feel confident the pet isn't causing any reaction, the by all means add that loving new member to the family. If there is any sign of reaction, it's not worth developing the attachment then have to re-home the animal. Think carefully in this matter.
