The Winn Feline Foundation
The Winn Feline Foundation is a non-profit organization, affiliated with The Cat
Fanciers' Association, Inc., which supports health related studies into medical problems affecting cats. Projects funded
by The Winn Feline Foundation have provided much of the information that is used every day in all aspects of feline
veterinary medicine. The Winn Foundation also strives to improve the health of cats through awareness and communication --
by providing information, guidance, referrals and resources concerning feline health matters to the CFA Board of Directors,
breeders, veterinarians, humane/welfare organizations, the media and cat owners -- and by obtaining data and information
which will benefit those working to better the health of cats.
To assist in this endeavor, Winn is fortunate to have the volunteer services of a number of individuals, including
professionals within the feline health care community. In addition, there are those with technical skills consistent with
the dissemination of information, and others vitally interested in the goals of the Committee.
Day-to-day activities involve identifying realistic projects and securing the manpower to bring these projects to fruition.
The Winn Foundation also maintains communication with CFA's Breed Councils to monitor and fulfill their needs and wishes.
The collection and organization of reference materials is necessary in order to respond to requests for information. Connected
with this is the promotion and improvement of CFA/breeder/veterinarian communications through the attendance and reporting of
feline health seminars and veterinarian association meetings.
In accordance with this mission, the Winn Feline Foundation is committed to providing regular articles and health information
for the CFA Almanac and this website.
