Join the Cat Fanciers’ Association and the Winn Feline Foundation as we celebrate Cures4Cats Day.
Cats provide their people with companionship and love, and as 92% of surveyed cat owners agree, feline health plays a significant role in their overall well-being. Winn Feline Foundation has established October 21 as the inaugural Cures4Cats day to emphasize the importance of feline health. This annual day of awareness is dedicated to highlighting Winn-funded research, the critical need for evidence-based medicine, early-stage biomedical research, and health answers for cats.
“Our mission at the Cat Fanciers’ Association has always been promoting the health and welfare of all cats,” said Mark Hannon, CFA President. “We applaud and support the efforts of the Winn Feline Foundation in their promotion of Cures4Cats Day. Their continued efforts have built a strong foundation for improving and managing cat health.”
Winn Feline Foundation has been on the leading-edge of feline health research since 1968 and Cures4Cats Day encourages cat lovers to support their efforts. As Winn embarks on its next 50 years they aim to deliver even more critical advances in cat health.
August 22 has been set aside as a date to remind cat owners everywhere to take their #cats to the Vet. CFA has joined with Royal Canin with this promotion.
According to a release from Royal Canin, did you know that while 92 percent of cat owners agree that their cat’s health is important to them, only 41 percent take their cat to the vet for regular checkups, according to a new survey from Royal Canin, a pet nutrition company? In fact, only one cat is seen by a veterinarian for every five dogs, despite the fact that 10 million more cats are owned in the United States.
“Our goal with this year’s program is to rally cat owners, veterinarians, industry partners and even celebrities together to shine the spotlight on the importance of veterinary care for cats,” explained Kamie Eckert, president of Royal Canin USA. “While the gap in preventive veterinary care between dogs and cats in the U.S. continues to be a concern, the great news is that it can be addressed.”
