Top 10 HYPOALLERGENIC CAT BREEDS

CORNISH REX

The Cornish Rex is a rare cat, but very endearing and attached to his master. He has a dog behavior, since he does not hesitate to follow his owner all over the house.

Indoor cat, its fragile appearance actually hides an athlete’s body and a very good resistance to everything.

He has a kitty character throughout his life, is active, happy and playful.

The only drawback is that it meows fairly regularly, in a piercing voice.

The Cornish Rex as we know it today was born July 21, 1950. In the property of Mr. Ennismore, her cat gives birth to a litter of which one of the kittens presents a coat of astrakhan, presents big ears and a rat tail.

This kitten, kept, is named Kallibunker. Then, when he wanted to be neutered, his veterinarian advised him to breed to confirm offspring of the same particular coat. Bingo!

Kallibunker’s young had the same characteristics, with a more curly hair. This was the case, for example, of Sham Pain Chas, the only male in Kallibunker’s litter.

A few years later, a small group of breeders came across Sham Pain Chas with common-breed congeners. This gave a new variant of Cornish Rex.

HYPOALLERGENIC CAT ?? Very good cat for allergy sufferers since they shed very little because they possess only the undercoat layer called the down hair. 

ORIENTAL SHORTHAIR

The Oriental shorthair, also called Oriental, is a cat of average size atypical, oriental type like three other races (Siamese, Balinese and Mandarin).

Its appearance, which is often compared to that of a greyhound, differs from that of other cats in particular because of its triangular shaped head surmounted by two large pointed ears carried very straight and his body slim and muscular.

The Oriental Shorthair is an excellent pet, affectionate and faithful, but with strong character.

Oriental Shorthairs are short haired and shed very little hair. 

SPHYNX

The hairless Sphynx is an example of the cat breeds that come about accidentally.

A genetic mutation brought about the birth of a hairless kitten to Elizabeth, a black and white domestic cat in Toronto, Canada. Elizabeth’s owner recognized that Prune, as the kitten was called, was unique and set about trying to reproduce him.

He, along with other hairless kittens that were born in the mid- to late 1970s, was bred to furred cats, including the Devon Rex. The gene for hairlessness is recessive, so while some of the offspring were hairless, others had fur.

Originally known as Canadian Hairless Cats, according to The International Cat Association, breeders eventually settled on the moniker Sphynx for the unusual breed, a reference to the gigantic limestone sculpture in the Egyptian desert, worn smooth over the millennia through erosion by wind, sand and water.

The Sphynx is recognized by the American Cat Fanciers Association, the Cat Fanciers Association and The International Cat Association, as well as other cat registries.

Perhaps the world’s most famous Sphynx is Mr. Bigglesworth, played by Ted NudeGent, in the Austin Powers comedies.

SPHYNX

This breed of cat is hairless. Therefore, they have no hair to trap the allergens in their saliva. 

RUSSIAN BLUE

The Russian blue is a sweet-tempered, loyal cat who will follow her owner everywhere, so don’t be surprised if she greets you at the front door! While she has a tendency to attach to one pet parent in particular, she demonstrates affection with her whole family and demands it in return.

It’s said that Russian blues train their owners rather than the owners training them, a legend that’s been proven true time and again.

They are very social creatures but also enjoy alone time and will actively seek a quiet, private nook in which to sleep.

They don’t mind too much if you’re away at work all day, but they do require a lot of playtime when you are home.

Russian blues tend to shy away from visitors and may hide during large gatherings.

RUSSIAN BLUE

This is suprisingly a hypoallergenic cat. Even though he has some fur, he is still short haired. This breed is famous for his blue/grey coloured coat that makes his coat shiny. 

BENGAL

The Bengal looks exactly like a little wild cat: its typical dress has dots and rosettes (two-tone spots) like those of a leopard.

It also has mottling, especially on the legs, on the chest and around the face. Patterns vary from one individual to another.

Bengal is medium to large in size, often larger than that of our usual domestic cats; males, in particular, have a strong frame and a powerful body.

The females, finer, however have a musculature drawn which gives them a wild look.

The head is rather elongated, with a thin nose reminiscent of Siamese and the tips of the ears is rounded.

The dress may have various colors, in brown tones, but there are lighter shades drawing towards gray – white. The eyes are yellow or green.

BENGAL

What makes this breed hypoallergenic is not that it produces less of the protein that makes people allergic to cats, but it is their coats that make them hypoallergenic.

Their coats require less maintenance, for that reason, their coats aren’t charged with as much saliva. 

BALINESE

The Balinese is a long-haired breed of domestic cat with Siamese-style point coloration and sapphire-blue eyes.

The Balinese is also known as the purebred long-haired Siamese, since it originated as a natural mutation of that breed and hence is essentially the same cat with a medium-length silky coat and a distinctively plumed tail.

As is the case with their short-haired counterparts, a genetic distinction is made between traditional or “old-style” and modern body types.

In the American standard, color variants derived from the Colorpoint Shorthair are further considered a separate breed, known as the Javanese.

There is no particular connection between these cats and the Indonesian islands of Bali and Java, from which they derive their names.

BALINESE

This cat breed produces less of the D protein in his saliva, which makes him a good candidate for allergy sufferers. 

SIBERIAN

SIBERIAN

This is a great option for cat lovers who really prefer a long-haired cat. 

DEVON REX

DEVON REX

Same family as the Cornish Rex, the Devon breed has less hair and shorter fur than the Cornish Rex. 

JAVANESE

JAVANESE

Javanese cats only have one of the three layers of coat that regular cats have, similar to the cornish and devon rexes. The difference is that this cat breed only has the top layer of coat that most cats have instead of the down hair. 

LAPERM

LAPERM

Laperms shed a lot less than most cat breeds because of their curly textured coat.
