I love animals and want to get a cat. However, my boyfriend is allergic to animals. My friend has a Persian cat and when we are at her house, my boyfriend does not seem to have a reaction to the cat as he does when he's at my parents house who have two cats and a bulldog. My boyfriend gets to the point when he is around animals that he sounds like he has asthma. Is there a way, since Persian cats have long hair, that he might not be allergic to this type of cat? I love my boyfriend very much, but I've been raised with animals my whole life and not having one is very upsetting. I guess my question is, do Persian cats contain less dander than other cats and do you think it's possible to have one even though my boyfriend has allergies?
The answer is no. Persians do not have less dander. vetcare
