In January 2015, PandEcats.com published an article titled Broken Hearts.

Written by Jeanne O'Donnell of Donegal Himalayans, the article details Jeanne's heart-breaking experiences with the genetic heart disease, Feline Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM). Jeanne discovered she had the gene in her breeding program when her male, CH Donegal's Irish Cream, developed congestive heart failure due to HCM.

Jeanne has since spearheaded the push to develop a DNA test for HCM in Persian and Exotic cats by raising money to fund research grants from the Winn Feline Foundation.

The Atlantic Himalayan Club has joined the fund-raising efforts by producing and selling a full-color 2016 calendar showcasing some of the finest Himalayans, Colorpoint Carriers, and Pointed Exotic Shorthairs in the cat fancy. Renowned cat photographer, Larry Johnson has designed the calendar and donated all the images of the cats that are featured.

All the proceeds from the sales of the calendar will be donated to The Winn Feline Foundation and earmarked for research to develop a DNA test for HCM in Persian cats. This is your opportunity to play a part in eliminating HCM from our beloved breeds . . . and get your Christmas shopping done early. It is a win-win-Winn scenario!

Pre-order your calendars for just $18.00 until June 30, 2015 or $20 as of July 1, 2015. You will find complete information about how to order this calendar on the Atlantic Himalayan Club website.
