Are Cornish Rex hypoallergenic?
A. No, the majority of allergy sufferers react just as strongly to Cornish Rex as to other cats. A small percentage of people who are allergic to cats can tolerate a Cornish Rex because its short coat doesn’t hold dust, dander and saliva as well as a normal coat does, but others will still have a reaction to the rex coat. Anyone with allergy problems interested in any breed of cat should spend some time visiting with and handling that breed before deciding whether to not to take one home.
