Cats are becoming an increasingly important part of veterinary medicine. As a cat lover herself, MSU alumna and former MSU trustee Patricia M. Carrigan was the first to recognize the College’s potential for advancing feline health and wellbeing. She saw a unique opportunity to focus the College’s intellectual and technological resources into a cohesive unit dedicated to helping solve important health problems facing cats. In 1999, she committed herself to this effort by establishing the Pat Carrigan Endowed Chair in Feline Health. What followed was the creation of the Center for Feline Health and Wellbeing.
