It is said that Russian Blues produce less of the Fel d 1 protein which is the most common cause of cat allergies. They also shed less than some other cat breeds. However, there is no such thing as a completely hypoallergenic cat. It really just depends on the person. Some people with cat allergies are still allergic to Russian Blues while others are not.
If you would like to test your allergies, we can mail you a t-shirt that the cats have slept on. Of course this is not a 100% effective way to rule out allergies but it has been effective for us in the past.
This is an excellent first step in ruling out an allergy. If you or someone in your home has cat allergies, once you have joined our waiting list we require a visit with the cats to fully rule out any reaction before bringing your kitten home.
Shirts are plain white basic t-shirts in size XL that we let the cats sleep on for several days. We make sure that every one of our cats has thorough contact with the shirt before we ship it out.
Shirts are $25. This includes sale's tax and shipping through USPS.
