LaPerm cat hypoallergenic? – No

The title contains the question and the answer so there is no more to be said except to show a couple of photos of the LaPerm cat.

P.S. It is sad. A lot of people like cats and want to adopt but can’t because they are allergic to cats. They search for a hypoallergenic cat and ask Google. They go through all the cat breeds. “Hypoallergenic’ means less likely to cause an allergic reaction.

The trouble is that all domestic cats have the Fel D1 allergen in their saliva which is deposited on their fur. You can’t buck nature. Claims have and are made that certain breeds are hypoallergenic such as the Siberian but it’s not true. Perhaps some individual cats might be hypoallergenic. These will be either random bred or purebred. You might get lucky (as some people claim) but as far as I am concerned it is a fruitless exercise asking Google to find a cat breed which does no cause an allergic reaction in humans.

Disagree? Please tell me.
