RE: Another OT-allergies

We love cats but my husband is very allergic.  He has been taking shots for
years and has improved his sensitivity in most foods and several other
areas but cats and dogs still remain high.  We even checked with our
allergist to see if there might be a variety of cat that he might tolerate
more (some people with dog allergies can tolerate poodles) but
unfortunately nothing is available.  Maybe with all this experimentation
with genomes some enterprising person might develop a cat with a changed
dander and open a market to those with high allergies.
