The late feline fancier Maxine Adler left $7.6 million to the Veterinary School at the University of California, Davis in the name of her cat, Du Bee.  Du Bee received cancer treatment at the school’s animal hospital ten years ago.

The school will have an annual “Du Bee Award” for research in cancer treatment for pets, and cancer treatments discovered using the funds must include “Du Bee” in their names, according to terms of the bequest. Ms. Adler passed away two years ago at age 70, pre-deceased by Du Bee.

Editorial comment: $7.6 million is a lot of scratch.
