This week’s question comes from Careth T., who asks: I really want to get a cat, but my husband is mildly allergic. What kind do I get? (He’s totally on board and we’d like to rescue.) I’ve heard that longhaired kitties are better for allergies.
Cats and Sneezes By Sarah Donner
If you tend to suffocate when a cat is in your face You might need a special breed to accomodate your special needs
Theres a protein inside the kitty gene that causes allergies called Fel d 1 It can make you wheeze, cough and puff, and sneeze If you lose your steez, what is to be done?
According to the Internet, science doesnt know quite yet if there is a single cat truly hypoallergenic But here is a list of breeds that are possibilities:
Devonshire and Cornish Rex make very curly pets Balinese are petite, slender are the Javanese Oriental shorthairs are very active so take care Siberians need big homes because they are big boned The Sphynx can freak out your friends because they are naked!
Its not the hair that makes you sick, it's enzymes inside their spit So make sure you try out your pet before you commit to it
