Top 8 Hypoallergenic Cat Breeds, Ranked by Personality

I hear you like kitties, but can’t stand being around them so much?  Fear not, for we have compiled a list of hypoallergenic cats that would hopefully leave you a little less sniffly, a little less itchy.  And a little less dead from being within one foot of them.  Let’s get started!

Top 8 Hypoallergenic Cats, the Purrsonality Guide

Russian Blue

The true Mona Lisa of hypoallergenic cats, thanks to their trademark smile.  This kitty likes to chase sunbeams and mousies, and can be extremely playful when she feels like it.

The best part is their shimmery lavender grey coat, and hopefully you’ll grow to love the color, as your clothes will be covered in it.

Javanese Cat

This hypoallergenic cat is highly intelligent and full of culture.  And they do love their java…  well, at least, they like to pretend to.  Please don’t give your cat coffee.

Siberian Cat

When you think hypoallergenic cats, you probably think hairless or the inability to shed.  Thing is, it isn’t the hair that causes the allergic reaction, it’s the spit!  Siberian cats have a low level of Fel d 1 protein in their saliva, so allergic people are often able to tolerate them.  If you want a floof cat, here’s your floof!

Cornish Rex

If you want a hypoallergenic cat with a serious case of the zoomies, you’ve found it!  I guess the lack of hair really adds to the lack of wind resistance, which gives these kitties a super boost when they choose to let go of some of their excessive energy!  Zooooom!

Bengal Cat

If you want an extra playful and mischievous hypoallergenic cat, here you go!  Bengals are naughty, chatty beasts – but they seriously love their humans.  They’re known as the dogs of the cat world for good reason.

Oriental Shorthair

Be prepared to give this almond-eyed cutie tons of attention, with hours of chatting back and forth amongst yourselves.  Oh, the conversations you’ll have!  Even better, this kitty comes in over 300 patterns and colors.  Lots to choose from if you’re the crazy picky type.

Devon Rex

This is a hypoallergenic cat that is great for families who aren’t home often since they’re pretty good at staying out of trouble.  Well, for the most part.  When their people ARE home, they absolutely shower them with affection.  They’re good little guys, yo.

Please don’t leave them at home alone all the time though.  That’s just mean.

Sphynx Cat

Oh my.  The Sphynx has the softest downy coat of wrinkly suede that you’ll want to constantly caress…  well, if he’ll let you.  They do love loads of human attention, but might not be so prone to a daily dose of human cooties.  He’s gotta lick that off later, you know.

We hope this article was informative, and if none of these kitties will suit your allergenic needs well enough, then there is still hope, since a new cat allergy vaccine has apparently been developed by scientists.  Meowza!
