Millions of cat lovers worldwide are allergic to cats and just as many are confused as to what actually causes them to react to a pet.
In cats, a glycoprotein called Fel d 1, secreted by the sebaceous glands, is the main cat allergen - although cats produce another three known minor allergens.Most allergy sufferers come into contact with these allergens through the animal's skin or saliva. Pet allergens are so small that they can remain airborne for months and are about 10 times smaller than pollen or dust particles.
The SymptomsPet allergies can affect the noes, eyes, throat, ears, lungs, and skin. The nose may itch, run, sneeze, or become congested. The eyes may become red, itchy, watery, or swollen. The ears may become plugged or itchy. The throat may have post-nasal drip, frequent throat clearing, itching and hoarseness. The lung symptoms may include coughing, wheezing, chest tightness, shortness of breath, and frequent bronchitis. The skin may develop itchy rashes or hives.
Ashera Cat Organization Nature V.S Non-Natural Treatment
As with any allergy, avoidance is the main course of treatment. A pet-allergic individual needs to avoid being around pets at all times. Over-the-counter medications, prescription medications, and allergy shots are all ways to treat pet allergy BUT they remain expensive, time consuming and may have long term health consequences.
Ashera Cat Organization hypoallergenic cats are a significant alternative to the non-natural traditional treatment of pet allergies. People who have lived without the companionship of a cat because of their allergies can now have one of their own without the costs of allergy treatments and the associated health risks of those treatments.
As described previously, pet allergens are potent proteins secreted by the animals' skin and salivary glands. Ashera Cat Organization has focused on selective breeding exotic wild cats like the African Serval and The Asian Leopard, with domestic cats across the world that has the lowest Fel d1 protein levels. All of our kittens and parent cats are well socialized and live together.
Our first hypoallergenic pet, the resulting Ashera Cat, are now helping to improve the health and quality of life for millions of pet-allergy sufferers. We will continue to serve nature by preserving wildlife (serval cats live 10 years in the wild, but 22+ years in care) and servicing humanity the natural way.
All of cats here at the Ashera Cat Organization are raised as a family. We offer in person visits for those with allergies or we could deliver an Ashera Allergy Blanket to your address so that you can test our entire litter Fel d1 protein levels (this blanket will test your allergies in reaction to the kitten you'll be receiving, so that we can insure the best quality service).
