While searching for a hypoallergenic cat due to cat allergies within our family, we discovered the beautiful Siberian. Siberian cats are considered to be hypoallergenic, as many people with cat allergies may have little or no reaction to them. We have found this to be true within our family.
As cats groom themselves, the saliva dries on their fur and skin which then flakes off and travels over the room. Siberian cats produce less of the Fel-D1 protein in their saliva which is generally what causes allergic problems. For many allergy sufferers, this means they can finally have a cat in their life.
