ALLERGIES - HYPOALLERGENICS
The Siberian cat is known as the hypoallergenic cat. People who suffer from cat allergies are
usually symptom free with a Siberian. Whether you are slightly sensitive or have a more moderate cat
allergy, our kittens do extremely well in homes where there are adults or children who suffer
from cat allergies. The hypoallergenic properties of this cat are due to the low levels of FEL-D1
that occur naturally in this breed. FEL-D1 is a protein which is produced in the cat's saliva
and applied to the coat during its daily cleaning and grooming. Once dry, it becomes airborne
and is the irritant that causes allergic reactions in some people.
We take the extra steps necessary for people interested in a hypoallergenic cat by using a
specialized Biotech Laboratory, and have our adults tested for their own individual levels of FEL-D1.
This way, should you or anyone in your house have cat allergies, we are able to help you make the
perfect choice and right match of a kitten with a person's own level of cat allergy. This type
of care and concern assures you of many years of comfortable living and enjoyment with your pet.
For those of you who would like to "allergy test", we offer fresh fur samples
and provide complete written instructions on how to work with the samples. There is a fee of
$50.00 for this service. If you have any questions regarding allergies or the testing process,
please feel free to contact us.
