They shed a RIDICULOUS amount of hair - you can get cats/pets that are non-allergy triggering

Yep, they shed a lot, do not get fluffy cats or any other fluffy pet if you can't deal with all the hair.

Yes, they shed a lot. Most types of cats do.
Whether it affects someone depends on the person and their condition. If you have allergy-induced asthma, it probably will.

If you have an allergy to cats, you could take things like antihistamines. Just normal OTC antihistamines almost completely eliminate hay fever in the summer if I happen to get it one year. Everyone is different but it will at least help to reduce your allergy.

Although if you use an asthma pump, make sure antihistamines won't interact with it. I would assume antihistamines are safe to use with asthma pumps but you should make sure.

There's no comparison, Maine Coons shed more than even other long hair breeds if only due to their size. Have both, there's no comparison.

Why are you even anon tho???

My friends Maine C is a fluffy but doesn't seem to shed much and I don't get any reaction. Her older 'normal' cat on the other hand always covers me in hair and sets my throat/eyes off without fail. *shrug*

Just get a hypo-allergenic cat or take the risk.

That’s simply it because their biological nature is long haired and constant shedding - it’s not something that can be changed. So depends how much you prioritise the aesthetic of the cat in comparison to your asthma and severity of your usual symptoms to animals that shed.

I replied to this above - but no I don’t but i have had cats for the past 16yrs and am well-familiarised with the specific breed. Chances are if you go visit the animal before you before you commit to taking it home then you will know within the preceding 24hrs whether you react negatively or not. But also in the interests of the animal it’s a bit unfair to risk if you think you won’t be able to live with the reaction later or aren’t willing to take anti-allergy precautions.
