I have just learned that Siberians are hyppoallergenic, I was wondering if anybody knows anything about it?
If anything I always thought that hairless cats like Sphynx would be less allergenic, but a longhair breed????

Please help me solve this mistery:)

Thank you

Hi Catmom

My name is Alex, and I am actually a breeder of Siberian cats
for all you refferences you may check my website www.nycattery.com

back to your question:)

Yes, Siberian cats are considered to be THE ONLY hypoallergenic breed.
What makes them hypoallergenic is not the fur, but the saliva, actually absence of FELD1 (protein) in their saliva, or very low count ot it.
I actually know breeders that are EXTREMELY allergic to other cats, yet they are perfectly fine with Siberians.

I have been breeding Siberians for about 7 years by now (from 2005) and as you would immagine, I must have had over a 1000 people as potential customers at my house in all these years, most of which were allergic to other breeds, and maybe only 10 people still had an allergic reaction. But I am still not sure if that was to my cats or to somethging else in my house

As a matter of a fact, cats101 has a sintific proof of everything I have stated below.

Here is a link to their movie about Siberians


I hope I have at least partially answered your question, if you still have questions, please feel free to post here and me or perhaps our other users will have a better answer for you
