Bulletin: November 2010 Bulletin available for download

Leo first came to our attention in August 2010 when he was released from a testing facility. He was extremely lucky as most animals are killed after experiments are complete. Leo had been part of a study aimed at improving surgical techniques for vision correction in humans. His nictitating membranes (third eyelids) had been surgically removed, but unlike several other cats, he was not implanted with contact lenses as he was part of a control group. Prior to this, he had been used in vaccination studies at another facility.
