No More Allergies

Dempsey the Hypoallergenic CatHow 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.

    Isn’t it nice to have ‘money back guarantees’ after one year. (note the sarcasm)

    ITCHMO ADMIN: No kidding. We can’t ever imagine ever “returning” a pet.

    This is horrible. There are so many cats who need good homes, and here they are creating new ones with genetic modifications whose ramifications we can’t predict.

    I see it happen too much at the rescue I am at (as in at least 10 times since I have been their Feb 06); *at least* they usually return them to us as we ask during the adoption process rather than dump them somewhere else. Too many people seem to look at getting a pet as just another consumeristic wouldn’t it be great to add a pet to my collection of *things.*

    When *thing* starts behaving other than *owner* wants the honeymoon is over and they no longer want the *thing* that is behaving outside of their preconceived parameters of how *things* should act.

    Just be sure that if you must have a GM cat,that it’s only the dander that is the only thing that sets your body off. A former in-law as thinking about getting a Wheaton Terrier because she’s allergic to dogs She went to visit one at her daughter’s friend’s house after applying hand lotion. Result:the dog licked her hands,of course, and she broke out in a bad rash nd hives. She loaded up on Benadryl and then got some kitties and all is well. My cat licks - a lot.If I were allergic to the saliva, it wold be a bad situation!
