Washington state cat blood bank desperate for feline donors

ACCES Blood Bank in Seattle, which maintains a dog and cat blood bank used by veterinarians across the Western U.S., is short on feline donors. Normally, ACCES has a roster of at least 50 donor cats, according to veterinarian Jennifer Waldrop, but currently it has about two dozen cats. The result is at least a three-day wait for cats in need of blood, Dr. Waldrop said, noting the challenge of obtaining feline blood affects practices nationwide. Donor cats must meet certain criteria for weight, health and other variables. There’s no monetary reward, but Dr. Waldrop says owners can rest assured their efforts are life-saving.
