pexels-cat in bedLast April, Winn announced the funding of 15 new feline health research projects for a total of $304,477, one of our largest grant reviews yet. Each year, Winn Feline Foundation receives proposals from veterinary researchers around the world who are interested in improving feline health. To date, Winn’s cumulative total in feline health research funding exceeds $7 million.

One of the four 2020 feline health grants available for sponsorship will evaluate the development of a frailty scale for use with elderly cats.

W20-044  - Development and Initial Validation of a Frailty Scale for domestic cats. 

Principal Investigators: Tony Buffington, Melissa J. Bain, University of California, Davis. $20,000

People and pets can get frail as they age leading to injury, confusion, and earlier death. This study evaluates frailty in cats so it can be measured (Frailty Scale) and identified sooner so better prevention and care can be instituted earlier.

Sponsorship is easy! Simply pick one of the projects seeking sponsors ($250 minimum donation). Go to our website for more information on the project and to make your sponsorship donation online or download a donation form to mail to: 637 Wyckoff Ave., Suite 336, Wyckoff, NJ  07481.
