Dear Daisymae Maus and family,
After seeing your blog, I wanted to let you know about some online cat resources. I am working on a campaign called KNOW Heartworms, sponsored by the American Association of Feline Practitioners and the American Heartworm Society. Most people know about the danger of heartworms to dogs, and this campaign is trying to raise awareness of the danger of heartworms to cats. Studies have shown that while 59 percent of dog owners use a heartworm preventive, less than 5 percent of cat owners do, even though cats are at risk any time that dogs are. When a cat does get heartworm, it is difficult to diagnose and treat.
This is a non-profit campaign. I hope you find this information useful and may even consider posting something on this topic. If you'd like more information, please visit www.knowheartworms.org, or feel free to contact me. Further cat health information is also available on www.catwellness.org, which is updated frequently.
