An interesting fact about cats I didn’t know. This trivia question from freekibble.com asked:
Allergy sufferers often overlook cats as an option, but which features can make living with a feline possible?
And the answers to choose from were:
A light colored coat, Longer fur, A female cat or ALL of the above.
Not knowing for sure what the answer was, and thinking that surely longer fur wasn’t right, I clicked on A female cat.
And the answer is at the bottom of the post. Did you get it right?
I used to be allergic to cats, and probably still am a little bit. My allergies have been kicking up a lot this and last year. But then living on a farm with dust, crops and animals of all kinds helped out there. We currently have two female cats, one short haired one Shadow, and a long haired one, Smokey. And an outdoor cat Luke. He gets kind of gross now and then, but Papa feels sorry for him a lot and lets him in at night sometimes. Luke sits on his lap on an old towel that gets washed separately from my good towels. 🙂
I see the towel is missing this time.
And the answer to the question is:
All of the above: Female cats with lighter coats produce fewer allergens, & longer fur helps to keep allergy-causing dander close to the skin.
Have a great rest of the weekend wherever you are.
Stay Safe and God Bless!
