Here's a link from Wikepedia .. it says no evidence but maybe less of what causes allergic reactions in mixed and other breeds.

I'll read it. Honestly, I've never owned a Siberian kitty. I'd love to own one, that's for sure. But I've never even touched one. But if they're hypoallergenic then it must mean the hair texture is different. I know Yorkshire dogs are less likely to cause allergies because of the hair type which is closer than any other breed to human hair. At least that's what I learned on Animal Planet :)

It is usually the cat's saliva that people are allergic to.

I remember when I got Abby, my husband was so allergic to him. He almost made me give my kitty away.  I never understood why my husband was allergic to Abby ad not his cats. I got a product called Allergy Relief from Cats and it worked so well. I posted about that some time ago on here, see if anyone could help me with that problem. I wasn't going to give up on my cat. Up until today, I still do not know what makes some people become allergic to some cats. I wasn't allergic to my cat, and neither was mom or any other family member. Only my husband. It makes me wonder if it has to do with people's immune system instead of just something else. I know some cat owners need to go to the hospital and get allergy shots, or smething like that. Why do some people, in the same household, become allergic to some cats and not everybody?

I am telling ya, I would recommend that product to anyone!!!!

By the way, what you posted, the web pge, was very good. Thanks!!  :)

We had a cat for 20 yrs and who died 2 yrs ago and my dd's asthma got better (hmmmmmm) .... stil there but doing really well except for illness.  We were thinking of trying a hypoallergenic kitty but probably won't at this time.  She tested many yrs ago very very slightly allergic via skin tests but reacts to other people's cats and needs Benadryl (itchy eyes, but no asthma) .... although living with our cat she never had that problem so we really just don't know.

She's 16 now.
