A $7.6 million bequest to the University of California at Davis School of Veterinary Medicine has been made not in the name of the late donor, but in that of her late cat, KSBW News reported. Maxine Adler, the donor, brought Du Bee, her cat, to the veterinary college for treatment for cancer 10 years ago. The cat died, but Adler appreciated the care provided. Under the terms of the bequest, any cancer treatment developed with the funds must include "Du Bee" in its name. Also, a Du Bee award will be made every year to researchers who make advances in cancer treatment for pets.
