It’s twice as common for people to be allergic to cats than dogs, but did you know it’s not the fur or hair that causes it? Usually, the triggers are minute proteins found in a feline’s saliva, urine, and dander. Therefore even ‘hypoallergenic’ cats such as the hairless Sphynx, could cause an adverse reaction.
Avoiding the source of the allergen is one way to guarantee you won’t have a flare-up, but if you do, the symptoms may be relieved by antihistamines and corticosteroid nasal sprays. There are solutions out there, and a HEPA filter may help keep that furry friend in your life! ❤
