Siberians cats are thought to be a hypoallergenic breed
And most cats truly are, but every person is different, so is every kitten!
Siberian cats sport a moderately long coat, but still is hypoallergenic due to the lower-than-average enzyme levels in their saliva. Some claim that 75 percent of cat allergy sufferers have no reaction to the Siberian.
Quick tips for new pet parents
Adopting a “hypoallergenic” cat may not be a total cure-all but you can hopefully relax and breathe a bit easier. Try spending time with a cat of the same breed you’re interested in and see if your allergies remain in check.
Once you have a cat, there are steps you can take to minimize allergens whether you have a hypoallergenic breed or not:
Brushing: If you’re allergic to cats, the process is best left to a groomer or family member. Research has proven that regularly brushing your cat can help remove up to 84 percent of existing allergens and reduce the future production of allergens. Please do not wash cats unless absolutely necessary, they groom themselves quite well and efficiently.
Wash Toys and Cat Bedding: Washing toys and bedding also reduces the number of allergens floating around your home. Do this at least once a week.
