Yesterday I learned that my article about the Feline Friends project, which MU’s Research Center for Human-Animal Interaction is raising money for and will be conducting, was picked up by the American Veterinary Medical Association’s news feed!
Not only that, but a very kind person in Florida read the article and decided to donate $1,000 to Feline Friends! I could not be happier. It’s a small thing to write about a project that will benefit both children with autism and cats that need to be adopted, but it’s so cool to have it pay off for such a deserving research organization.
But despite several donations, the research center still has a long way to go before it raises enough to begin. Read the article here and, if you are able and so choose, donate to the project!
