World’s First Hypoallergenic Cats by Allerca

If you’re an allergy-sufferer who has longed for but not dared to get a cat as a pet, you can now get one for $4000 that won’t bring you the sneezing and red eyes. Allerca, a biotechnology company in San Diego, has developed a hypoallergenic cat by breeding litters from cats that do not carry the Fel D1 glycoprotein, which is the cause of most allergic reactions. Especially popular with urban dwellers, these cats are already backordered with a year-long waitlist.
