Progressive Retinal Atrophy

The Somali Breed Advisory Committee (BAC) at their recent meeting on August 9th,

discussed PRA testing which is currently being carried out by some breeders.

A number of cats have been tested and as a result an anomaly has been found.

UC Davis are investigating the irregularities and understand the concerns of the Somali BAC.

The main person who has done the genetic research will be contacting us.

We advise at the moment not to rush into testing your cats until this matter is resolved.


As of January 2010 the Somali Cat Club BAC are still waiting to hear from UC Davis
