Council is also continuing its outreach to educate the public and the veterinary industry through the It's All About the Cat
campaign. Initiated by the CATalyst Council, the American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP) and the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) are partnering to develop feline life-stage wellness guidelines for veterinary professionals. The Winn Feline Foundation will coordinate the writing of a consumer version of the guidelines with the assistance of writers on its media committee. Once adopted, the CATalyst Council will work with other animal organizations to share this information with consumers.
"We are reaching out to all parties - the pet healthcare community, shelter and welfare organizations, government and the public - to ensure that cats receive the proper care and attention they need and deserve," said Dr. Jane E. Brunt, executive director of the CATalyst Council. "It truly is all about the cat."
