Hello, we just adopted a 15 week old pure breed Bengal and after spending a couple hours with him, I started sneezing and getting a runny nose, like a typical allergic reaction. I'm 43 and had a domestic short hair tabby for the past 15 years (passed away two months ago), no issues. My in-laws have two Maine Coon cats whom I've spent a lot of time with, again no issues.
Is there something unique with this breed that could be causing these allergies? Or it just could be something else, but I'm not allergic to many things.
Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
