Impact of cat allergens
Many people go to great lengths to reduce allergens in their environment, such as daily cleaning and frequent washing. Cat allergens can limit people’s interactions with cats, though, and they’re a common reason people relinquish cats to shelters. Allergens also create a barrier to cat adoption and ownership.
As many as 1 in 5 adults worldwide are sensitised to cat allergens.
Avoidance or rehoming is a common recommendation to manage cat allergens.
