Some Cats May Be Allergic to Humans
In some rare cases, cats can be allergic to humans.
When cats do have a bad reaction to us, it is usually
caused by residue from our soap, perfume or laundry
detergent, etc. Any water-based cleaning product
usually contains some preservatives that could also
cause a cat to have a reaction of some sort. Cats appear
to be more sensitive to chemicals than dogs are. Specific
chemical allergies are difficult to isolate and diagnose,
so pets cannot be vaccinated for them or build up their
tolerance with exposure like they can for organic
Believe or not, cats can even be allergic to other animals
and pets. Veterinarians offer antihistamines for dogs to
treat various allergies caused by other animals. Cat
antihistamines recently hit the market also.
