Is there a cure or vaccination for people suffering the cat allergy? — 6 Comments

  1. An allergy occurs when the body’s immune system has an exaggerated reaction to a usually harmless substance. The most common allergens (substances that trigger the allergy) are dust mites, molds, pollen, pets with fur or feathers, stinging insects, and some kinds of foods.

  2. Hi Michael,

    I know there are a lot of people out there who would like a cat but can’t get one or even be around one due to allergies. That’s a shame. There is a high demand for allergy vaccines or cures.

    Vaccines or cures for allergies don’t exist yet as far as I know. They would be handy and would certainly be a big hit among many.

    As far as I can tell, vaccines are at least a half dozen years off but are being worked on.

    The best we can do right now is settle for the temporary fix – pills and allergy shots.

    A cure would be a whole new challenge and would be a potential next step at some point in the distant future for those who suffer from cat allergies.

    • It would be great if someone found a cure. I am sure many entrepreneurs are working on it because millions could be made. The cat allergen is a peculiar happening in the long relationship between cat and human. Sometimes nature can be cruel.

  3. Interesting. A vaccination would be great. Sadly I think that allergy is often used falsely as an excuse to relinquish a cat. Albeit they are ‘sudden allergies’ it is somehow not challenged in the mainstream. Therefore people don’t think about it being a poor excuse and it is largley acceptable to turn your cat in to the pound claiming somebody was allergic.

    • Agreed. This question is a real one and I am sure many people would like something. But I am also sure the that cat allergy is a convenient excuse and therefore a barrier in the human/cat relationship. Personally, I believe that the cat allergy can creep up on people. That is people who were not allergic can become allergic over time. People can become sensitised to the allergen I feel.
