Using “proprietary genetic technologies,” Allerca has produced a line of hypoallergenic cats. These genetically selected/modified cats (the process is not clearly described) produce a variant of the Fel d 1 glycoprotein, the protein normally associated with feline allergies. Allerca claims this makes the GD cats hypoallergenic.
There are only a few catches:
- You can’t select the color of your cat.
- The cats are available for the low, low cost of only $3,950.
- The wait is two years or more, though for a minor expedite fee of $1,950 you can reduce your wait to “a few months.”
- There is a processing and shipping fee of of $995.

Oh, one more item — all Allerca cats are either spayed or neutered. I wonder why that might be…
