THINK was started by a group of breeders and a vet who were concerned by illness and deaths in young kittens caused by conditions such as Flat-chested Kitten Syndrome (FCKS). The organisation has four main objectives: to Identify the various types of thoracic deformities that occur in kittens, Educate the general public and the veterinary profession about thoracic deformities in kittens, Fund research and help breeders and vets to Treat the condition.

THINK is a new project, so some parts of our website are still under construction. Please keep checking back for further information.
