I would like to acknowledge and profoundly thank the following people whose expertise, help, advice, and encouragement made the vision of the Kevin Memorial Foundation a reality:
The veterinarians and staff of the Cat Hospital of Fairfax for their dedication to the finest ideals of the veterinary profession, the application of their knowledge and skills for the relief of feline suffering, their compassion for the patients (and the owners/guardians) under their care, and their emotional support during times of extreme stress;
A legend in holistic veterinary medicine, Dr. Carvel Tiekert of The Animal Care Center in Joppa, Maryland for his willingness to take on some of our "hopeless" cases;
Lydia and Sandy of Cats Are Tops for their friendship, expertise, and unwavering devotion to the care of stray and abandoned cats and kittens;
My family for their tolerance and understanding when the cats take priority over everything else and force the continual rearrangement of plans;
My office family for their good natured listening to all my cat stories and their support during all the times when schedules need to be revised to accommodate cat errands and emergencies;
And finally to my wonderful, tolerant, understanding feline children who seem to realize that there will always be new cats coming into the house that need mom's attention. Anna, Tammy, Munchkin, and the rest of the Thompson cats ---- without your help, none of this would be possible.
My sincerest and most heartfelt thanks
