Hummm... my brother-in-law is HIGHLY allergic to cats, but he has a dog (and obviously isn't allergic). So, I would think the same could happen in reverse? I would think it's possible.

I was once allergic to both Cats and Dogs

After 6yrs of allergies shots I am no longer allergic to either.

However I lost my allergy to Dogs first so for awhile I was allergic to dogs but not cats.

So yes I would say it is definitely possible.

Yes it is possible. And each animal has unique dander so a person could be allergic to one cat but not another cat or one dog but not another dog. Allergies are quite strange.
