Mungo is an Ocicat: a breed with a short coat which doesn’t shed much so he is less likely to cause a strong allergic reaction. He is also not allowed in the bedrooms so his influence is limited!
People who are very sensitive to cats might well still react to his presence, but as the house has no fitted carpets even very allergic friends report that they’re comfortable.
Ursa is a Labradoodle: a low allergen poodle cross who has no access to upstairs at all. She was born at the end of October 2013, so is now a young adult. She is very used to guests coming and going, never aggressive and not allowed anywhere near the breakfast table.
