the myth of ~Hypoallergenic~ cats
Do we have hypoallergenic cats??
We get this question a LOT! and NO, we don't - for a few reasons...
First and foremost, hypoallergenic cats DON'T exist! Contrary to popular belief, cats that shed less are not less allergy inducing than other cats - allergies to cats come from their "saliva, skin, and urine" (https://pets.webmd.com/cats/features/do-hypoallergenic-cats-exist#1) - NOT their fur! Long haired, short haired, or even hairless cats are not any more or less allergen inducing than the other.
Second, even if specific breeds of cats were less allergy inducing - we don't have any cats that are specific breeds - this is a rescue!! And we would never, EVER condone 'shopping' for a cat from a breeder. Breeding animals when so many are homeless and die every day is NEVER responsible. Period. #adoptdontshop
HOWEVER, there are things you can do to reduce pet allergens in your home! There are special air filters, human allergy treatments (make sure it's the pet you're actually allergic to!), even a brand new cat food that may help reduce allergens in the home (https://www.purina.com/pro-plan/cats/liveclear-cat-allergen-reducing-food)!!
Check out some of these additional resources and learn more about cat allergens (and your own allergies!) before you decide to adopt!
