Mr. Swanson's Day is coming on April 9th, and to honor Mama Swanson and in Angel Mr. S's memory, his photo will be my profile photo until after his big day. In a few weeks, I'll be with other Winn board members and advisors deciding which proposals to support. There are 6 FIP proposals for Bria Fund consideration. There may be more than one worthy FIP proposal, but the number we will select will also depend on the Bria Fund donation balance. Every dollar donated helps advance progress in treating and ending FIP.


Please change your profile photo, using this photo of Mr.. Swanson on April 9th or now, like I did and please share my message. If you will be making a donation to the Bria Fund because of Mr. Swanson, please...

CAUTION!

Increased FIP research is important and needed, but an important reminder! We need to ensure published research is from a credible source. Legitimate FIP research is peer reviewed and accepted by research experts involved in the publication it appears in. Once accepted and published in a credible publication, news of it is widely shared. The process of acceptance and publication can be quite difficult at times. It often requires additional information and resubmission, until accepted. Dr. Pedersen is in the process of submitting Luna's clinical trial for publication. Despite it not being published, including the trial’s protocol, and the exact formula of the drug proprietary, (totally the private property of...

I finally found a few minutes to write about Jim, my and the Bria Fund’s wonderful experience this past week-end. We were at Gray Summit, close to St. Louis MO, for the Midwest T.G.I.F. Fanciers and the National Birman Fanciers’ cat shows. The location Purina Farms, and its Events Center, where the cat shows were held, was quite impressive. Both shows were excellently managed, and we greatly appreciated the invitation and hard work by everyone involved. There were many beautiful cats, including those shown in the household cats competition, where shelter and rescue cats can also be entered. I definitely got my Birman fix with all the adorable kittens and lovely adults. Thanks to Charli, the NBF show manager, I also g...

Many of you know that we held a fundraiser last month to recruit new FIP Patriots and raise money for future FIP research. Donations were received from new patriots and many experienced ones serving in our army to end FIP.

For the month of July, we raised $9395, almost a third of the amount needed to fund a $35,000 FIP study award! Thank you to everyone who participated and donated in July.

Together, we will end FIP!

Upper respiratory infections are an important cause of disease in cats, especially in animal shelters. While there are often multiple viruses and bacteria associated with upper respiratory infection, we have evidence that cats are infected with feline coronavirus in nasal and conjunctive (eye) swabs. Our study is designed to assess the importance of feline...
