I am allergic to cat dander, but my S/O loves cats. He has suggested (and I can't tell if he's serious) that we get this breed. I personally don't think I could live with Golum day in, day out. What do you think?

Yikes ... there's Grumpy Cat and then there's Beelzebub

Awe, I'd love that kitty to pieces!

You even get to (well have to) bathe them regularly because their skin produces an oil that can be quite stinky.

I'm sure the cat's personality would be more of a factor than his/her looks. If it was a total sweetie, you'd come around.

There are breeds that tend to be less allergenic than others. My Maine Coon mut didn't bother my mom at all, but the one I have now pretty much prevent her from entering my home.

Look at its bum! Uuummm, no thank you.

I love kitty's, and I am sure nik is right about the personality thing. I bet these cats do have kick ass personalities 'cause they sure don't have the looks thing going for them.

My Maine Coon mut didn't bother
Hey, tushnurse, I have one of those, too. And, I am very allergic to cats, they can trigger severe asthmatic reactions in me. My bedroom is a cat free zone and whenever I touch Binx I wash my hands. We have had him for 5 years now and I haven't had an asthma attack once!

Awww... me too.... he'd be my *special* little kitty. I'd definitely love him.

Serious question here though if anyone knows - does this breed of cat have high temperature requirements and need cat jackets indoors etc.,?

Kitties riding roombas = untoppable.

My S/O says, in a whiney voice, " could buy him the most delightful little outfits." As if.

Sphinx cats are pretty cool. I'd like to have one.

Um,... negative!!!!

I didn't read your post all the way through, Lynn; don't get one of these for allergies--they don't have any hair, but they have a very real dander problem. They need to be wiped down daily.

No because I think he'd win in a fight. He looks mean and tough!

inhishands55 posted 9/12/2013 23:11 PM

I'm sorry that is not a pretty kitty...I don't know what I would call it...Not my cat for one thing though...

I like the furry ones best....

I love naked cats! But for allergies I hear that siberians are a good breed.

lynnm1947 posted 9/13/2013 08:01 AM

I've heard that, too. Sad, thanks for the info on sphinx re: dander. Now I have ammunition!

Rebreather posted 9/13/2013 09:23 AM

Why is it inside out?! /Joey

silverhopes posted 9/13/2013 10:27 AM

Isn't that Scary Cat, one of Grumpy Cat's nemeses?

Vulcanized posted 9/13/2013 12:08 PM

Hell yeah! But ... only if he was a rescue.
