Something to Sneeze At

Kevles states that pet owners can build up a tolerance to their animals but can suffer an acute allergic reaction when separated from their pet. Actually, the opposite is true. Persons who are allergic to their pets learn to live with their symptoms and can actually become well during an extended separation. Also, there is no evidence that the Rex cat provokes fewer allergic reactions than other breeds.
