Can you be allergic to some cats, but not others?

I'm like that. I have 2 cats of my own. They don't bother me at all. But when I go to my Mother's or Grandmother's house(both have cats) I get filled up almost immediately.

What happens with me, is living with my 2 cats every day, my immune system gets used to them. But its not used to anyone else's cats, thus a major allergic reaction.

My sister had strong allergic reactions whenever she went near cats and then a while later we bought two cats but they were both short haired called devon rex's which means that they dont shed to the degree that normal cats do. My sister hasn't had any problems when around them and shes also asthmatic. Shedding would aggrevate your allergies so yes you can be allergic to some cats but not others.

Yes, there are definitely some cats you will be allergic to and not others. Its a problem I have with my friend's cat. I'm terribly allergic to it and start to sneeze and tear up immediately despite being the owner of 4 cats that don't bother me one bit. Very weird! They are now genetically engineering cats that don't cause allergies but be prepared to pay $3000 apiece for them!

Yes, you can be allergic to some cats more than others. My husband and I are both allergic to cats. We've noticed that tabby's are worse than black cats. Even long-haired cats bother our allergies.


katja r
yes!i m like that!))))

I think so. It's supposedly their saliva that causes the allergies Rather than their fur so i suppose it you may be more prone to flaring up after a cat has just groomed its self. But think that it might be a factor on the length of fur and how much they cast.

Just take piritine of some type of anti-histamine

It was to my knowledge that people weren't allergic to cats per se, but the cat dander. essentially I don't think you can be allergic to some and not others.

Cat allergen is not actually cat hair, but a protein present in the dander and saliva of cats. The allergens become airborne as microscopic particles which, when inhaled into the nose or lungs, can produce allergic symptoms. Cat allergen is particularly sticky and is carried on clothing.

I think that people find themselves "less allegirc" with short haired cats, and cats that don't shed a lot of hair.

I used to be really allergic to cats, I would sneeze, weeze when breathing and get hives.
We just started to vaccuum a lot more, spray down the furniture and keep the cats off of the furniture. I'm not so bad now, just the occasional sneeze here and there.


Dr Frank
Patients commonly report that this is the case. I have 4 cats sometimes if 2 particular cats are moulting I will cough, i am not allergic per se, but not with the other 2. i am sure it relates to the quality of the fur.
