    actually you are allergic to proteines of cats, so even the smallest dander will cause problems with your immune system. your only help is a hyposensitization and cleaning your house very regularly. if you don't you will sooner or later need cortisone and develop many more allergies ..

    A friend of mine has a hairless cat and i am still allergic to it. I have heard of people getting genetically engineered cats but i think they are very expensive so its probably not worth it.

    You can get hypoallergenic cats, but they are extremely expensive....

    http://www.allerca.com/

    The last I heard, there is still a long wait list too.

    That is really strange...cats and dogs being sold like furniture.

    Yeah, it is weird. Lots of cat lovers that are allergic though.

    BTW, have you considered using allerpet? It inactivates the allergen that most people are sensitive you. You have to wipe your cat down with it every few days though....
