No Such Thing as a 100% Hypoallergenic Cat

Contrary to popular belief there is no such thing as a true 100% hypoallergenic cat. While there are some breeds that could be better suited for someone with allergies, we wouldn’t be able to vouch with absolute certainty that any of the cats that come through our shelter would fit these breeds. This is because the majority of the cats that come through our shelter are strays with no paperwork indicating the breed. Additionally, it’s worth mentioning that pet dander plays only a partial role in allergic reaction while proteins in cat saliva tend to be the cause. It’s worth doing some research to find out which breed(s) would be better suited for allergies.
