14 Hypoallergenic Cat Breeds

Devon-Rex-cat-1024x676_grandeHomeoanimal.com published an important list of all hypo allergic cat breeds for those who suffer from allergies. Here is the article and a link to their great site which describes each breed in detail.

 

You’d love to have a cat but you, your spouse or kids are allergic to cats. No worries, you can still adopt a cat. You may have heard of “hypoallergenic” cats. That does not mean that they are all 100% allergen free. That just doesn’t exist. Perhaps, they are proven to reduce allergic reactions by a lot.

What makes them hypoallergenic? They are called hypoallergenic because they produce lower allergens than the more common cats we know. There is a protein in cat’s saliva called Fel D1. This protein is what usually makes an allergic person take antihistamines, sneeze, have itchy eyes or even have an asthma attack. But the following 14 cat breeds produce less of this protein than others, which makes them hypoallergenic. Now you can go try to convince your family members that there are actually some hypoallergenic cats out there!
