List of the best hypoallergenic cats. For men and women who are allergic to cats, but absolutely need a feline friend, there are a number of hypoallergenic cat breeds to choose from. These are the best cat and kitten options for those who feel like sneezing every time they hear the words "Hello, Kitty." You might also enjoy these ridiculous headlines featuring cats and the most hilarious cat selfies

Still, it is extremely important to note when looking at these rankings of the top hypoallergenic cats that the term, "hypoallergenic cats," does not mean that these kitty cats will not induce allergic reactions. Rather, cats like the Abyssinian, the Balinese, and the Oriental Shorthair, are all kittens that are less likely to provoke an allergy attack in those individuals who are unfortunately allergic to cats. The Rexes are two perfect examples of this: the Devon Rex and the Cornish Rex are both fantastic breeds of cats for those who are allergic. The same can be said for the famous Sphynx, the Korat, and the Bengal - all beautiful cats and hypoallergenic to boot. If you're looking to own some pets, there are many types of allergy free cats. 

So if your boyfriend thinks his cat allergy will keep you from adopting a furry friend, show him this list and have him think again. Vote up the best hypoallergenic cat below that keeps your allergies under control and is absolutely adorable to boot. And if you're looking for a dog to add to the brood while you're at it, check out our list of the best dogs for allergies sufferers.
