    Does anyone know of a breed of cat that does not cause so much of a reaction in those that are allergic?
    Thanks

    I've also read that Ragdolls are good for allergy sufferers.

    Well I would have to say British Shorthair :D , basically anything that doesnt shed too much hair! (I also have allergies to cat, dog & horse) and my BSH has never effected me but my tortie brings me out in a rash, sneezing, itchy eyes ..... etc! So I try not to get too close to her (she sheds quite a lot!)


    Oceanzen: Your kitties are gorgeous!! Sooo fluffy!
