Hypoallergenic kitten(s) required South East England

Post by tomo » Mon Dec 01, 2014 7:59 pm

Hi,

I'm based in St Albans and am interested in one or two kittens that are ok for pet allergy sufferers. I can travel to make pickup.

Please let me know if you can help,

Thanks,

Tom.

Hi Tom,

We don’t think there is any particular breed that would be more or less likely to cause allergic symptoms, as it’s the dander from the skin or saliva rather than the fur which produces the allergens, however usually short haired cats produce less dander.

Please check out our Cats Needing Homes section to see cats/kittens posted to Cat Chat who are looking for a home - just choose your area from the map here: http://www.catchat.org/shelter_centre/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

or, find your local cat rescue shelters here: http://www.catchat.org/adoption" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

If there are no kittens at your local shelters at the moment, ask them to put you on their kittens waiting list. Kittens shouldn't leave mum until they are at least 8 or 9 weeks old, even better 10 – 12 weeks. If you haven't got a cat already, please consider adopting two, as they love companionship, and will settle in quicker with another cat or kitten around. Don't forget though, kittens don't stay kittens for long, and cats often live to 17 - 20 years (or more).

Hope that helps, best of luck!
