Lisa,

There are a bunch of breeds. This is taken from the internet: http://www.petmd.com/cat/wellness/evr_ct_hypoallergenic_cat_breeds

Want to adopt a cat, but suffer from allergies? Maybe you’ve tried coping by taking antihistamines, and have a HEPA air filter in your home. You may have even heard the term "hypoallergenic pet" but not know it applies to cats.

 

Some feline breeds exist that are considered "hypoallergenic," or produce fewer allergens than others. Cats do produce pet dander, a common allergen, but the culprit for the estimated 10 percent of the population who are allergic to cats may be a protein, Fel d 1, that is present in cat saliva.

 

Technically, there are no 100 percent hypoallergenic domestic cats. The following is a guideline which petMD recommends for people who want to adopt a feline, yet feel options are limited due to allergies:

Hello there-

For those of you who are loyal Lincoln Talk readers, I emailed not too long ago about a Chinchilla Christmas present for my daughter, which did not end up working out b/c of my allergies.   We have moved on and are now thinking about a cat.  I am wondering if anyone in the community that has a cat which is hypo (or less) allergenic.  If so, I would love to know what breed and if I could come to visit your cat to see if I am allergic.

I realize this is a bit of an odd request.  Thank you in advance to anyone who might be willing to help.

-Lisa Freedman

Check with Melinda Loof.
She used to breed Burmese which are hypoallergenic?.produce no dander and a great, people-oriented cat.
