Many cats need homes. Unfortunately, many people who would like to adopt a cat cannot because they’re allergic to felines. For those people who are allergic to cats but would like one anyways, there’s hope.
Swiss biotech company HypoPet is testing a vaccine that could be given to cats, which will help them stop producing allergens. A Virginia-based company, Indoor Biotechnologies is taking another approach. This company is trying to isolate the gene that produces allergens so that way they can create cats that won’t trigger an allergic reaction.
Then again, a third solution is to just get a cat and suffer because suffering is what cat ownership is really all about.
