Often I am only interested in certain categories of posts from a blog. Is there any feed reader that allows this? Also, is this information even included in RSS/ATOM?

Would think this question be better if you had a reader in mind, wanted to know if it was possible and then leave a note saying if not, suggest an alternative. – Eight Days of Malaise Aug 6 '11 at 2:10
Both RSS and Atom do have a category element, although it's optional. Blogs that have categories are likely to include it. – cjm Aug 6 '11 at 9:09

I don't know of any reader that has such capacities. Sometimes blogs themselves offer a feed specific to one category.

I personally use Feed Rinse for some feeds to filter out posts that I don't want. There you can block (or allow) items based on title, tag, author or content. Maybe that could help you as well.
