Do You Have Allergies?
If you want to adopt a cat, but are an allergy suffer, we may have some good news for you! Siberians are a low allergen or ‘hypoallergenic’ cat. This does not mean that Siberians are ‘allergy proof’ or cannot cause a reaction in people. It simply means that they produce less of the Feline d1 protein (Fel-d1) that is found in the cat’s saliva that is thought to be the culprit for producing allergic reactions.
Not all Siberians have the same low level of Fel-d1 and some people could react to some Siberian cats and not others. If you are allergic to cats and want to test your allergic response to Siberians, it is best to have an allergy test at our cattery. We charge $45 to perform an allergy test. Tunie’s Siberian cats and kittens are from low allergen parents.
Please contact us for an appointment if you are interested in performing an allergy test. The $45 fee is due at the time of the appointment. Appointments are limited to 30 minutes.
Tunie’s Siberians gives the buyer the possibility to return a kitten to our cattery if the Buyer develops an allergy after purchase. In our written contract we will allow the Buyer to return a kitten to our cattery in 14 days with full refund of payment excluding deposit ($200 – deposit fees are not refundable). This period is only for people that have no other animals in their home.
