How about trying a hairless cat as a pet? Supposedly people who are allergic to cat dander do very well with this specific variety., known as the Sphynx Cat. Which raises the question: if furless cats don't have dander, do bald people not have dandruff? I'm not sure I really would want to contemplate this for any extensive length of time!
