a catizen science project
to study the bacteria
that live in cats
We are studying how microbes interact with cat biology, behavior and health. We are conducting the world's largest study of the microbiome of kitties.
With your help, we will create the world's largest database of cat microbiome data. We invite everyone who cares about kitties to join this project.
