    Do sphynx cause allergies to humans?

    Hello all, I’ve wanted a sphynx for a while now but my partner is allergic to cats. I’ve looked online and found contradicting information. Can sphynx cats still cause allergies? If anyone can give me any info/advice/experience that would be great. Thank you! Sophie
