Hairy Hearts

Hairless Hearts is committed to forming relationships with other like minded organizations that are also fighting the Good Fight against HCM. We support and share infomation about HCM research, education and cardio clinics with advocates of all breeds.   Together, we aim to form a chain of hope to find answers about this devastating "CAT" disease that affects ALL cat owners; not just Sphynx.  If you are interested in collaborating with Hairless Hearts in this effort, please contact Cheryl Kerr,

Bengal Breeders (UK) United (BBUKU)

bbkuBengal Breeders (UK) United (BBUKU) are a small group of Bengal breeders having carried out over 100 HCM screenings between us. We are spread throughout the UK with a single common goal; to preserve the future of the Bengal breed.  To achieve this goal we aim to encourage fellow breeders to breed as responsibly as possible by testing their breeding cats for health issues known to affect our beautiful breed. We also hope to raise awareness of these health issues and encourage potential pet owners to buy from Bengal breeders who are working in a responsible manner by screening their breeding cats for HCM.
