• About Us

    I have studied many philosophers and many cats. The wisdom of cats is infinitely superior. - Hippolyte Taine

    The CSU AAFP sponsors quality seminars, wet labs, and field trips on many feline topics. We also host an annual Cat Care Conference, a day of continuing education focused only on cats.

    If you are interested in feline medicine, please consider being a part of our club. Dues are just $20 for the year and includes access to all of our sponsored events--which feature great food!

  • Meetings

    Each month during the school year, the we sponsor a meeting, wet lab, or field trip focused on feline medicine. Past events have included seminars on nutrition, vaccination, shelter medicine, and more. Wetlabs have covered topics from handling fractious cats to emergency procedures. Field trips to local practices and shelters are also popular events.

    Club meetings are open to all interested parties, but food is served only to dues paying members. Wetlabs and field trips are limited to dues-paying members.
