Cat Skin Allergies

The term "allergy" is a general reference to an immune-mediated hypersensitivity reaction to some antagonizing environmental "allergen," which is normally innocuous to non-allergic animals.

Virtually anything in the environment can be an allergen.Once a cat has been exposed to an allergen, subsequent exposure to the same substance will cause hypersensitivity (allergic) reactions, depending
