The following officers were elected or confirmed in post:


President Eric Wickham-Ruffle, Vice-Presidents Eileen Fryer and Pam Taylor, Chairman Eileen Fryer, Secretary Keith Scruton, Treasurer Grace Wylde.


Out of respect for Christina Dugdale it was agreed to defer the election of a vice-president to replace her until the next AGM.
 
It will be club policy to send out AGM paperwork by email in future years to save the cost of printing and postage unless the secretary has been notified  in writing at least four weeks in advance of the meeting that the member wishes to receive a hard copy.

LANGFORD VETERINARY SERVICES
RAGDOLL HCM QUESTIONNAIRE

 

Questionnaire for Ragdoll breeders who have had their cats genetically tested for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM)

We are collaborating with the Royal Veterinary College, University of London on a project to follow up Ragdoll cats that have been genetically tested for the HCM mutation. This information will help Ragdoll breeders and owners, as well as vets, to understand what the result of the genetic test means, both for breeding and for risk of developing heart disease. The only way we can do this is with your help. If you are able to complete a short questionnaire, we will be extremely grateful because this information will help Ragdoll cats that have the genetic mutation and may suffer from HCM in the future.

 

How can you help?

If you have had a Ragdoll cat genetically tested for the HCM mutation (R820W) and would like to take part in the survey please use this link.

 


If you would like more information about the survey please email ragdollstudy@gmail.com

 

Thank you in anticipation of your help

FELINE CORONAVIRUS (FCoV) RESEARCH

 

 

Please visit Langford Veterinary Services for more information.

 

Our study requires tissue samples collected from cats that have died from any cause or disease, and at any age; we are not specifically recruiting FIP cases.

 

Many thanks again for your help with this research. We hope that it will benefit many cats in the future through its findings.

SOUTHERN COUNTIES CAT CLUB

 

Due to a technical error we have to re-draw the Sweepstake as the winner had not in fact entered the Sweepstake!    The good news is however that the Sweepstake will be re-drawn at the Club’s AGM, the date of which will be announced shortly and, obviously, this means those of you who entered will have another chance to win.

 

Please try to come along to the AGM – your views are welcome and we can always discuss them – and we do a nice lunch too!
