Cat allergies
I am not sure whether this is the right forum in which to ask this question, but nevertheless, here it is.

I am interested in buying a persian cat. However, my husband is very allergic to normal houscats, with the short hair. Would he also be allergic to the cats with longer hair as he has no allergy problems with longer haired dogs, such as pomeranians?

Probably "more allergic" to the long haired cat.
