Naked as a solution for cat allergic?

Don Sphynx breed is a breed of cat that is born from a bare (no hair). Among the established people is therefore logical that when a cat has no hair, is an ideal solution for allergy sufferers. For if someone is allergic to cat hair, so in this case should not be allergic to what.
Such an assertion is not correct if the "myth" contributed allergists who have allergies suffered by people in contact with a cat so named. This is not allergic to cat fur, but the substances were to coat. These are the proteins in cat saliva and secretions, which they in their intensive care for your hair rubs all over his body. Coated cat spends most of the day sleeping, snooze, and licking the fur. Thus, it cleans, but on every single hair and leaves your saliva. The fact that the cat sheds, and you need not convince even the most carefully what will it remove the hair from the flat, and so takes up to six months, while the coat of flat smeared allergenic protein disappears. Thus it is in the coated cats.
However, bare cats lick too! This is not to be so intense as that of their colleagues and become a furry that was hairless cat all day neoblíže even once. The advantage of such a cat is that it can be easy and if necessary take a bath, which will remove allergens from the skin even more.
From experience we know that the reaction to Don Sphynx must try every allergy sufferer himself. Some of these cats will not respond at all, some of these cats to their small impact on their immune system even heal. However, there are also cases that the Donoch allergies sneeze and weep...
It is not possible to say that Don Sphynx cat is suitable for allergy sufferers. In many cases, however, can not even argue the opposite, because our offspring are many families with allergies and their co-existence of either party does not cause any problems.
