Dr. Drew Weigner, president of the Winn Feline Foundation makes an exciting announcement, and why this matters to you if you happen to have a cat or even care for community or feral cats.  This organization, which was founded in 1968, has funded over $7.5 million in feline studies. There isn’t a cat on the planet who hasn’t benefited from this organization’s funding. Dr. Weigner makes the announcement: the non-profit is now called EveryCat Health Foundation.

I also describe how I became involved with the Winn Feline Foundation and launched the Ricky Fund to support funding for a common heart disease in cats (feline hypertrophic cardiomyopathy) named for our piano-playing cat, Ricky.
