99 LIves Genome project - curently having a CROWDfunding campaign

99 Lives - project that will sequence the genome (DNA) of 99 cats in order to identify normal/abnormal genetic variations and causative mutations for specific health concerns, and allow veterinary hospitals to provide individual genome sequencing for cats. These genetic variations possibly cause diseases such as renal stones in the Egyptian Mau breed. The Lyons Lab is already working to find the gene(s) for this anomaly. However, whole-genome sequencing more Egyptian Mau cats would assist in our research. 

The link for donattions is (99 Lives Donations), their video (99 Lives Video), website (99 Lives Home Page), and Facebook page (99 Lives Facebook).

Information on PK Deficiency in Egyptian Maus - Egyptian Mau breeders and owners asked to participate

We would very much like to put together a database of Cats within the breed so that we can track status if possible and would love it if you would share your results so that we can try to track all of this.  You can send results to emau@emaucats.com .   We also encourage all breeders to test their cats before breeding so that we can effectively manage this and ideally breed away from it without decimating our genepool  Link to test

 

 

Next Meeting:    CFA Annual Las Vegas Nevada - Friday July 1, 2015 after the Delegate meeting or 6 PM.  Please forward any agenda items by June 25th 2015.

rescue cats -

while most Egyptian Mau breeders act responsibly and do their best to take care of their cats/kittens as well as provide assistance, support and advice for their pet owners, we periodically find ourselves in a position where there are Egyptian Maus in desperate need of new homes.  Providing a home for one of these special cats can often be a win/win situation with the opportunity to do a good deed AND get the chance to experience the wonder of this incredible breed.
