Allergies to cats

I recently found out this summer that I am allergic to cats. I thought I might be because my mom is. I get nasty bumps in many places of exposed skin after being in close contact with cats.

It's really terrible, because I <3 cats. I was visiting a friend in Ohio and I was taking a nap and her cat Sprout nuzzled up right against my head and woke me up. It was the cutest thing ever

I talked to a friend about the allergies, and she said there's some sort of breeding of cats without the thing people are allergic to. Does anyone know more about this?

Well you'd be hard pressed to find a hypoallergenic cat in need of adoption (I'm going to go ahead and assume you don't want to purchase from a breeder). However, if you were able to sleep at someone's house who owned a cat, are your allergies really that bad? Also you said you only recently "found out" you were allergic to cats...this also suggests to me perhaps your allergy might be something you can easily ignore.
