The Best Cat Breeds for Allergic Cat Lovers
If the ordinary cat makes you sneeze try a hypoallergenic cat (price permitting)
if just hearing the word ''cat'' makes your nose feel suddenly itchy and your eyes full of tears, very likely you are one of those people allergic to cats. Bless you! You may be happy to hear today that the first batches of hypoallergenic cats have been produced and that they are happily living in sneezeless homes where allergic cat lovers can finally pet and cuddle them with the old day ''etchuus'' being now just a far distance memory.
Seems too good to be true? Well, no need to pinch your arm to check if you are dreaming as their generous price tag will take care of waking you up.
Simply think of the words Ashera, Jabari and Chakan. No these are not names of pricey designer handbags or perfumes, rather they are the names of hypoallergenic cat and dog breeds designed just for allergic cat lovers. These pets are scientifically proven to be hypoallergenic, happily allowing allergic cat lovers and cats to be friends again.
But how is this possible?
According to Allerca, Lifestyle Pets, the main trigger of cat allergies is attributed to a glycoprotein called Fel d 1. This protein is secreted by the cat's sebaceous glands and allergic cat owners tend to get in contact with this through the cat's skin or saliva. These proteins are released in the air and are found in particles significantly smaller than dust or pollen.
The great news for cat allergy sufferers is that naturally occurring genetic divergences (GD) appear not to harm the cats finally allowing deserved relief to allergic cat lovers.
