Scientists Breed Allergy-Friendly Cats

Reddit

According to Yahoo News, a biotechnology firm in Sand Diego claims to have bred the world's first hypoallergenic kitten. After identifying the genes that produce allergenic feline proteins, scientists created the allergy-friendly kitty using a selective breeding process that spanned several generations.

‘For the first time, people who have been unable to own a cat because of their allergies can now enjoy a pet of their own without the associated risks and costs of allergy treatments,’ says Megan Young, CEO of the biotechnology firm Allerca.

Allerca expects to start taking orders for hypoallergenic cats next year, and they plan to charge $4,000 for an allergy-friendly kitten.
