How much would you pay for a cat? One New York City family paid $3,950 for a hypoallergenic cat from Allerca (a California based company that removes allergens from cats’ genes). The family was on a wait list for 2 years and they finally received their orange striped cat named Dempsey (pictured here — he was named after Patrick Dempsey from “Grey’s Anatomy”). If you want one, place your order before May 1 because after that, Allerca is raising their prices to $6,950. Don’t worry, Allerca has a one year money back guarantee if your cat is not hypoallergenic.
