7 Hypoallergenic Cats

 

Facts on Hypoallergenic Cats 

All cats produce an allergen from their skin or saliva (not hair) but some produces less allergens than others. Thus the word “hypo” which means “less than” in the word hypoallergenic.

Before choosing a hypoallergenic cat or dog as stated from the internet you need to be exposed to them in person because different people have different sensitivities to different cats.

But here are the cat breeds that are known to be hypoallergenic:

7. Balinese

They are sometimes referred to as longhaired Siamese because of the dark features on their face, tail and paws. They like attention and will follow you around, they are very friendly and has a soft voice.

6. Russian Blue

Big and muscular. It tends to shed a lot and is quite timid to strangers. The russian blue is quite laid back and likes to just sit around and explore for more places it could sit. We could say that they are quite introverted but if it asks for attention don’t refuse or they would start drifting away and it really doesnt like change around the house.

5. Bengal

Smart, friendly and athletic. Very curious and very playful. If you can’t play or take time to play with them, you would feel like the cat drains so much of your energy to take care of. Though its not too vocal but it would want to jump on furniture, on you and just play.

4. Ocicat

Just a toned down version of the Bengal cat. They are friendly towards other human strangers but would get jealous and start acting tough when there are other pets or animals around especially new strangers.

3. Siberian

If you want to get a cute and big cat that could fend for itself get this one. It is the 2nd largest known domestic cat, it has a wide variety of colours to choose from, pretty agile and it wants so much attention that it would follow you around everywhere and I mean everywhere.

2. LaPerm

This one is the most vocal out of the other hypoalergenic cats. Its over friendly, very playful and will try to pounce on you to play. Like most cats, it will sit and relax on your lap when given all the attention it is given but what makes them different is their curly wurly coat of fur.

1. Javanese

Looks like the Siamese and Balinese cat but the length of its fur is medium short. It could be trained to fetch and do other tricks. They don’t just follow you around but they tend to be in the way of your feet when youre walking or even just standing still. They are very social that if you don’t want to be meowed at 24/7 or hang out all the time they will get sad and will give you the cold shoulder until theyre satisfied with your repentance.
