Allergists say it varies with the individual cat more than between breeds of cats. So if you have allergies, you would need to have an allergist test to see which proteins you’re allergic to, and then test your individual potential pet to see if it has high levels of those proteins.
This was in the news when the Obamas were searching for a “hypoallergenic” breed of dog (but the consensus of doctors was that there are no such breeds).
