ANSWER #8 of 8

I'm not sure about a hairless cat. If you are thinking about getting a cat but are allergic you should get a Ragdoll....it is bred specifically for people with cat allergies...they are hypoallergenic and minimal shedding but are quite expensive....my daughter is allergic to cats so we bought a rag doll and she hasn't had any problems. Rag dolls are an awesome breed and are actually the worlds largest domestic breed of cat and a full grown male can reach up to like 30 pounds....you should google the breed cause they are really interesting as well as hypoallergenic :)
