CATalist Summit–Your Chance to Talk to Vets!

I have a ‘flavor’ to ask you. *s* I know that many writers share their lives with cats–and this is your opportunity to help improve the lives of your pets.

According to the AVMA’s latest poll, 36.6 percent of cat-owning households received no vet care in 2006 compared to 17.3 percent of dog households. So the American Association of Feline Practitioners (cat veterinarians) host the CATalyst Summit next week.

The goal is to understand the decline in vet visits for cats, why cats’ needs continue to go unmet compared to dogs, and how that trend can be reversed and improve feline care. I’ll be there and would love to pass on cat owners’ opinions to these experts. This is YOUR CHANCE to get them to listen!

1. Nowadays, vets recommend twice a year “wellness visits” for cats. Why do you (or don’t you) do this?

2. Do you think cats aren’t cared for as well as dogs–If so (if not) why?

3. What would help you better care for your cats?

The meetings are Tuesday and Wednesday but please post even after those days and I can still pass on the info. You could help improve the care and health of your cats.

best,
amy
