Hypoallergenic Cat Breeds

Many of us are allergic to pet dander, preventing us from owning many breeds of pets. If you’re a cat person, there are a few types of cat breeds that tend to go a bit easier on your sensitive system! Below, your Rochester, NY veterinarian tells you about three hypoallergenic cat breeds.

Devon Rex

The Devon Rex is a great all-around cat and works great for just about any family. It’s independent, but is loving and affectionate when its humans are around––that’s why it’s considered a great pet for working families. Plus, it doesn’t shed much dander, so the Devon Rex is largely hypoallergenic!

Cornish Rex

The Cornish Rex breed is striking in appearance and friendly in nature, and it loves to have fun and play. It’s important that a Cornish Rex gets the attention it needs, though, because they tend to start acting out if they’re left alone for too long.

The Sphynx

Sphynxes are thought of as “hairless,” but they’re really covered with a fine down. Still, they’re not likely to cause any dander allergies. Plus, you’ll own one of the most unique-looking cats out there!
