The Future: Hypoallergenic Cats
 
 

I know people who are allergic to cats and I have seen what kind of reactions they have to my cat. So it sounds like a smart idea to create a Hypoallergenic Cat. But then again, it totally sounds like science fiction.

Californian company ALLERCA says that it will produce the world's first hypoallergenic cats, and they expect the birth of these first special kittens in early 2007.
The first breed of hypoallergenic cat produced will be the British Shorthair, known to be friendly, playful and affectionate.

A glycoprotein, Fel d 1, secreted by the sebaceous glands, is the major cat allergen. This allergen is found in the fur, pelt, saliva, serum, urine, mucous, salivary glands, and hair roots of the cat.
Using patented genetic technology, ALLERCA will focus on the particular gene that produces the Fel d 1 glycoprotein. Allergic Cat lovers can reserver a Hypoallergenic Cat for $3,500. More details on Allerca corporate site.
