I have a bit of a dilemma, I am looking at purchasing a retired breeder, who is coming from a very reputable breeder that I definitely trust. In the past my girlfriend and I have exclusively adopted shelter cats. My girlfriend however has cat allergies, and while she is fine with regular cats from the shelter and loves them is hoping a low allergen breed would allow her to take less allergy medicine. We are very aware no cat is truly hypoallergenic though and she is fine with taking allergy medicine just a lower allergen breed would be appreciated and she has interacted with low allergen breeds without allergy medicine and been OK she is not hoping to take none just less, we are also considering having multiple cats as we've only ever had one at a time before, hence also a good time to consider less allergens. However we are both a bit unsure about the morality of purchasing a cat that was used for breeding. We understand that reputable breeders do not contribute to over population, nor are we opposed to responsible breeding, but we are unsure if it's bad to not adopt as we have in the past? Any advice or recommendations are appreciated we have looked at breed specific rescues but there are rarely low allergen breeds, much less ones that are guaranteed. Apologies if this is the wrong thread for this.
