Olyan macskafajták, amelyek nem okoznak allergiát
What is the cause of cat allergies?
Contrary to popular, but fundamentally incorrect, opinion, cat hair itself is not the causative agent of allergies. In fact, the cause of cat allergy lies in the specific protein Fel D1. It is secreted through the sebaceous glands, contained in the saliva and urine of the animal. It is this feline protein that provokes allergic reactions.
There is also an opinion that cats with long hair are more harmful and dangerous for allergy sufferers than pets with short hair. In fact, this is not so, because absolutely every cat has sebaceous glands. In addition, science has not proven a connection between a cat’s ability to cause allergies and how long its coat is.
However, it is quite logical that the less wool, the less foci of the distribution of allergens. Abundant molting is unusual for bald and short-haired breeds, which is why they are considered preferable for allergy sufferers.
Even with cats that do not exacerbate allergies, one should not forget about preventive measures: you should wash your hands thoroughly after contact with an animal, rinse bowls and toys of a cat every day with water, bathe a pet with shampoo at least once a week and wet cleaning all rooms weekly where the cat is.
This is the most popular breed group in people with allergies. The appearance of sphinxes is exotic. They attract attention with a thin tail and large ears.

In addition, sphinxes lend themselves well to training and are very attached to their owners.

Despite the small, graceful, slightly elongated body, Balinese cats have well-developed muscles. By nature, they are emotional, talkative, quickly and strongly attached to the owner.
Outwardly, the breed resembles a mixture of Sphynx and Maine Coon. A long nose, wide-set eyes, large ears and a huge fluffy tail are the main distinguishing features of the Javanese. The color can be very different: solid, silver, tortoiseshell, smoky and so on.

This breed comes in two types: short-haired and long-haired. An adult cat of this breed resembles a Javanese and has the same elongated nose, narrow cheekbones and very large ears.
Orientals are inquisitive, active and friendly, they appreciate the company of the owner and are ready to take part in all his affairs. Loneliness is not tolerated well, so they are hardly suitable for owners who disappear all day at work.
Listed above are the breeds with which an exacerbation of an allergy is least likely. However, even they can cause a painful reaction to the protein mentioned above.
