Please join Fabulous Felines and Dr. Christa Bernhard for the first talk in our 2017 Free Lecture Series. Dr. Bernhard’s talk is entitled From Wheezes to Puffs…Understanding Feline Asthma. She will discuss the clinical signs of feline asthma, and how it is diagnosed. She will also cover the treatment of an acute asthmatic crisis, as well as chronic management for the disease. As always, thanks to the generous support of our sponsors, this talk is Free to the public.
Dr. Bernhard completed a small animal medicine and surgery rotating internship at BluePearl Veterinary Partners in Tampa, FL. In 2016, she finished a three-year residency in emergency and critical care at the University of Missouri, where she also earned her Master’s degree in biomedical sciences.
Dr. Bernhard enjoys all aspects of critical care medicine and is dedicated to training veterinary staff and interns. She has a particular interest in respiratory disease, mechanical ventilation and management of shock. Her research experience includes the use of ventilator-acquired pulmonary mechanics and computed tomography in the assessment of respiratory disease.
In her free time, Dr. Bernhard enjoys outdoor activities such as camping, hiking, and running with her two dogs, Ajax and Joseph. She is also an avid fan of Xavier basketball.

Wild Love is our annual Valentine’s Day Celebration, and it honors the power of love to gentle even the most troubled animals who have come to us over the years, and the often surprising expressions of love these animals return to us.
To participate in Wild Love, simply donate $25 or more to Fabulous Felines in either January or February, and we will enter you in our prize drawing at the end of February.
We are happy to say that we have two prize packages, both consisting of a romantic dinner, chocolates, and jewelry, which doubles your chances of winning!
Our Wild Love Sweetheart, Fanny, picked a Valentine’s package that includes:
A $30 gift card to Farina Alto,
A pound of chocolates from Buffett’s Candies, and
A Carnelian necklace (retail value $190) from Shelton Jewelers.
Elizabeth, the beautiful redhead at the top of our web page, picked a Valentine’s package that includes:
A $25 gift card to P. F. Chang’s,
A box of chocolates, and
A Blue Quartz necklace (retail value $190) from Shelton Jewelers.
With two prizes, your chances of winning are doubled, so we are especially grateful to the generous businesses who donated these prizes. We hope you will patronize them, and when you do, be sure to mention Fabulous Felines.
The end of the year is a time of celebration and reflection, and we have always honored this by sending our Year End Letter to all our supporters. It is our opportunity to let you, the people who make this possible, know what we have done over the past year. 2016 is a particularly important milestone: it is the tenth anniversary of the founding of Fabluous Felines. Your generosity and the love we get from our feline charges have made this milestone possible, and we find ourselves reflecting on our good fortune, and the opportunities 2017 and the next ten years will bring to continue helping these wonderful animals.
2016 began with an especially rewarding experience. As part of our outreach program, Merry gave a presentation to the Meadowlark Senior Center in January. She was greeted by an audience of seniors interested in kitties and what Fabulous Felines does. Several attendees told stories of their own cats, or cats they have helped in the past.
We have a number of items that have been donated to Fabulous Felines, that would make great Holiday gifts. These range from big presents to small stocking stuffers, from high-end jewelry, to gift certificates to local restaurants and businesses, to rounds of golf, and of course, include lots of cat stuff! All of are either brand new, or gently used. We are offering them all at a fraction of their retail value.
