Easy Like Sunday

We're going to spend today cuddling and loving each other. We're going to spend a lot of extra time snuggling with Mom and Dad too.

Mom wanted us to ask our pals if they could give us some advice. We are looking for a Feline
Cancer Research foundation similar to WINN Foundation and SOCK (FIP). We would like to do a donation in Sniffie's name. There are general Veterinary Cancer research places, but most research is for dogs. We would like a Cat specific one. Thanks for your help.

We just know about the WINN foundation, but I'm sure that there must be other research foundations out there. But yes, frustratingly, there is a lot less research in this area for cats than for dogs. My human is a member of the Cat Writers Association (which is a highly respected group of writing professionals), and she knows that some of the very established members are working hard to raise the feline profile, both in media and in research medicine. It's way overdue.

That sounds good way to spend a day.

We hope you don't mind, but we are going to make a special mention of Sniffie in our LIVESTRONG post on October 2nd.

Sorry kitties, I don't know of any foundations like that. I hope you find a good one to donate to.

Brian said...

I don't know of any either. I hope everyone has a peaceful Sunday.

That is such a great picture of them.
That is such a good idea to find a foundation for cat cancer research. Maybe you will get an idea going. We will look around. We don't know of any right now. But we will do a little researching.
Try to have a nice cuddling day.

Enjoy your snuggling time together...yes, it's been a rough week for all of you. We're not sure of a good feline cancer organization, but we hope someone else will.

The Island Cats said...

Hi we're back...if you find a good foundation to donate to, please let us know. We talked with our mom and she said we could donate something in Sniffie's name too.

Cory said...

We don't know of any, but we'd love to hear about if you find one. We lost our dear Maggie to bile duct cancer in 2005 and we'd love to help contribute.

Stay close and snuggle each other.

That's a very nice idea. Perhaps you could find a vet research foundation at a university or college? We know here in California, UC Davis has a big Vet school. There must be something like that in Florida too.

Michelle said...

I remember being frustrated about the lack of research for cats. I hope you find some and PLEASE let us know. I will gladly make a donation as well!

Katnip Lounge said...

Enjoy all your snuggles. We think Raymond and Busby's suggestion was a good one. Please keep us posted if you find something good.

We think cuddling, loving and snuggling is the purrfect way to spend the day.

We talked to our mommy and she will donate some of our treat money in Sniffie's name too. Please let us know which one you find because we don't know of any either.

We think the WINN Feline Foundation is a great cause. I think they have a way you can stipulate the cause your donation goes for, also:

Oh I think Daisy may have a great idea. Cornell is the other cat veterinary college (and is sort of THE college even more than Davis) if you are looking to make a donation to a University.

Extra snuggling and cuddling will help all of you.

Sending lots of snuggle from us to you all. Mom will investigate any cat cancer research places.

Sweet Praline said...

What a great idea! If I hear of anything, I'll let you know.

Enjoy each other's company today!

Sweet Praline said...

Oh yes, I wanted to let you know that I will mention Sniffie in the Livestrong post on Oct. 2 if that is okay with you.

The University of Colorado has a pet cancer research center.

Oh you look so sweet together! Angel Sniffie will be happy you are comforting each other.

I am sure you will find the perfect place to donate in Sniffie's memory.

Winn Feline allows you to stipulate that your donation go to cancer research. There is also the CSU Animal Cancer center.
We also linked to these two groups when Texas passed away to lymphoma two years ago. We are very sorry for your loss.
