Why Siberians Are Good for Allergy Sufferers
I’m sure you’ve heard that Siberians are one of the few breeds of cats that are hypoallergenic.
This is in fact true, although it still comes down to the severity of the individual’s allergies and the cat.
The science behind this is that there is an allergen called FelD1 that causes allergies. Cats produce this allergen when they groom themselves and it easily becomes airborne.
Siberians are known to produce much fewer amounts of FelD1, but they do not produce 0% of this allergen.
99% of our clients with allergies has been fine around Siberians.
