Hypo Pet
“The published work, led by HypoPet’s Zurich-based research team (in collaboration with researchers from the Latvian Biomedical Research and Study Centre Riga, Vetsuisse Faculty University of Zurich and the Functional Genomics Centre Zürich, University of Zürich), showed that HypoPet’s virus-like particle vaccine targeting the major feline allergen (i.e. Fel d 1) to which humans are allergic, successfully induced Fel d 1 binding antibodies in cats and that these antibodies neutralized the allergen. Furthermore, the HypoCat™ vaccine was reported to be well tolerated without any overt toxicity. The data described in the paper were generated from 4 separate studies involving a total of 54 cats.”

Computerized kitty coinages | Claremont Courier
“He decided to give it another try and fed the same 8,000 cat names into a Neural Net that had been previously trained by data from the internet. It already understood letter and word sequences that tend to be used together. It also considered idiomatic meanings and kitty connotations. This solved the problem. Gone were names like Ballicidoux, as cute inventions like PomPomPure were born.

“The new system produced fancy names such as, Taffeta, Tom Glitter, Cheesemonger and Mr. Tinklesby Soap. For the less delicate owners, it also came up with suggestions like Meat Bag, Dr. Fart, Fudge Putty and Buttwig. And for those with a dark sense of humor, it produced suggestions like Miss Vulgar and Evil Whispers.

“The names were so abundant that the man decided to share them with a local shelter who uses them whenever they get a new litter. That lucky bunch of kitties doesn’t have to worry about getting stuck with a dull name like Middle Me. They get to head off to their new owners with perfect computerized kitty names like Whiskeridoo, Sparky Buttons and Peanut Butter Jiggles.”

DFW Purebred and Domestic Cat Rescue - Available
(Hey, it’s a Siberian cat who’s available for adoption—)
“Trixie is an 11 yr old Siberian, with beautiful green eyes, whose family moved and could not take all their pets. Trixie loves being stroked and having belly rubs. She does not like to be picked up but will jump up wherever you are sitting when she decides it is time for you to give her attention. She does not like dogs, but other quiet cats don't seem to bother her. Trixie would do best in a quiet home with no children. She developed a hematoma on her ear resulting in it folding over. Trixie is spayed and current on her shots.”

The book makes a great resource for every stage of life your cat and you can refer to it when you need it later too. My family had cats when I was growing up, but I still read it before getting our Siberian and it really helped me understand my cat better.”

“Cats require play time like dogs require walking. As well as Siberians can be pretty energetic. You should be playing with them with a string toy for at least 15 minutes every day for both energy spending and bonding.”

Hypoallergenic cats? : Pets
“One fun thing with my allergy is that kittens don’t trigger my allergies till they are about 3 months old. Because of this, I can foster motherless kittens for the humane society, and by the time they are big enough to go back for adoption, they still don’t bother my allergies. It’s a bit of work, but It’s been wonderful to have kittens in the house! It’s always sad to take them back, but my kittens always get adopted quickly because I train them well and they are socialized around kids and dogs, making them very attractive to families.”

Cat for adoption - Daenrys, a Siamese in Dallas, TX | Petfinder
(Oh, wait—nevermind about this cat in particular. According to East Lake Pet Orphanage’s website, she may have just been adopted.)

(Who knows whether this siamese might be hypoallergenic for you, but at least its adoption place seems to be reasonable about things?)
“We are located inside of East Lake Veterinary Hospital at 10101 E. Northwest Hwy in Dallas (just north of White Rock Lake, or just east of the Northwest Highway/Audelia intersection).

“The first step in adopting would be to come by our facility to meet our cats and kittens in person to see if the animal that you are interested in is a good match for you, after all, a very large part of the adoption process is based on finding the right chemistry. There are a lot of good people, and a lot of good animals, but that doesn’t mean that they automatically go together and selecting the right animal for your particular household is a very personal decision.”

(The conclusion is a bit squishy, but there is this tidbit:“ In 2 Siberian cats, the concentration of Fel d 1 in saliva was >1.5 µg/mL, whereas it decreased below 0.5 µg/mL in the subject showing the missense mutations.”)

Are Siamese Cats Hypoallergenic And Do They Shed A Lot
“Another important thing to remember if you take in a Siamese is that they don’t take solitude very well. If there’s not always going to be a human home, consider getting two Siamese cats so they can be each others’ playmate. In spite of their slender size, they have very loud voices that they will use a lot. No cat can truly be described as hypoallergenic, but the Siamese comes close.”

(On cats with low Fel d1 levels—)
“About 50% of Siberians were found to have lower Fel d1 levels than normal cats.  Under 15% of Siberians produced very low levels of the allergen, and could safely be placed in homes with severe or dangerous reactions to cats.  Low allergen matings produced more offspring with reduced lower levels of Fel-d1, though some kittens from most low-allergen matings still had normal levels of Fel d1.”

Colleen Barry on Twitter: "I usually comb the cats a couple times in spring and fall, when they’re shedding way more, because it helps prevent hairballs and keeps some of the fur off my floors, but for shorthairs it’s basically optional.… https://t.
(So you had asked—)
“How often might one need to comb a cat?”

(And Laura replied with—)
“If you get a shorthair (which I’d recommend, as a first-time owner), you really don’t. They take care of everything.”

(From there, you then asked—)
“And just out of curiosity, can I ask what length types Monte and Clarabelle are?”

(And Laura chimed in with—)
“Monte’s a shorthair, and Clarabelle’s … medium, I’d say? I give her a comb every so often, since her Magnificent Ruff* can get a little tangled.

“* this is a proper noun”

(And then Colleen helpfully added—)
“I usually comb the cats a couple times in spring and fall, when they’re shedding way more, because it helps prevent hairballs and keeps some of the fur off my floors, but for shorthairs it’s basically optional.”

(Gwen offered this advice—)
“One thing that works good on managing fur being everywhere is a furminator comb. I have used them on dogs and guinea pigs.”

(From there, you asked—)
“If by chance you may know, how often might one need to comb a cat?”

(And Laure offered this apt advice—)
“If you get a shorthair (which I’d recommend, as a first-time owner), you really don’t. They take care of everything.”

(Just for grins, you then asked—)
“And just out of curiosity, can I ask what length types Monte and Clarabelle are?”

(And Laura chimed in with—)
“Monte’s a shorthair, and Clarabelle’s … medium, I’d say? I give her a comb every so often, since her Magnificent Ruff* can get a little tangled.

Cat for adoption - Bambi " Siamese squeaky social ", a Siamese & Domestic Short Hair Mix in Flower Mound, TX | Petfinder
Yeah, this cat is cute-ish, and her blue eyes are a plus!
“Hi my name is Bambi. I am a four-year-old female Siamese lynx point Kitty. I am super sweet and very social. My blue eyes are stunning and my freckles are adorable. I like to be part of whatever my family is doing, especially if my mom is sitting at the computer or on the couch. I love to curl up on her lap. I haven’t been around many young children but I like older ones, even sleeping with them at night is something I enjoy. I have been in a home with other kitties before but I was bullied so I prefer being an only cat. I don’t mind cat friendly dogs as long as they are mellow and don’t mind me sniffing them sometimes. I am a curious girl, I like to climb to high places and relax. I have a few favorite toys that keep me busy too. Did I mention how cute my voice is? I have a quiet, but sweet and squeaky voice, everyone always tells me how precious it is!”

“Heh. Li’l Bit’s version of a love-bite is grabbing your entire forearm with all four limbs and then rabbit-kicking it (like she would if your arm were a rabbit she wanted to eat).

“River licks you raw first and then nibbles.

“Simon just licks.

“I left out the part where Bit gnaws on your fingers while disemboweling your forearm.

“That’s the ‘bite’ part, of course.”
