We reviewed the major allergy testing manufacturers and found that they all use the same allergen code, e1, but use different test descriptions (dander, epithelium, hair) Source: Regenstrief Institute

Cat-allergic patients with IgE antibodies to Fel d 1 have been shown also to react to the corresponding protein of ocelot, puma, serval, siberian tiger, lion, jaguar, and snow leopard. A subgroup of cat-allergic patients also react to dogs and sometimes to other animals. Serum albumin is the main common component. Extensive cross-reactivity even occurs between albumins of distantly related species and subjects with IgE antibodies to cat albumin may also react to horse, cattle, pig, rodents, and fur animals like mink and fox. However, great variability exists between patients and selective sensitivity to limited numbers of species occurs, indicating shared and specific epitopes.

Common and species-restricted epitopes have also been observed on the major cat and dog allergens Fel d 1 and Can f 1.
Allergy to cat dander and pork meat, also referred to as the pork/cat syndrome, was shown to be mediated by IgE antibodies recognizing cat and pig serum albumin. In addition, other kinds of meat may be a risk for patients with this type of sensitivity, as indicated by a case with cat-specific IgE antibodies and exercise-induced anaphylaxis after eating pork or beef.
