Do Hypoallergenic Cats Exist?

Expert Advice

Even if you find a cat that doesn't bother you, Zuckerman recommends taking certain precautions:

  • Have someone without allergies wipe the cat frequently with a damp towel.
  • Vacuum frequently and thoroughly with a sweeper that has a HEPA filter.
  • Keep the cat out of the bedroom.
