Anecdotes, signed articles

Not long ago, my best friend, Mr. Clark, died peacefully from feline squamous cell carcinoma. We gave him intensive palliative care, which reasonably gave him an extra six months of happy life. I have written up both personal tributes and clinical summaries, and our plan is to try to start a feline hospice and palliative program in his honor. Now, there's no problem if I get some of the veterinarians or veterinary students and they turn my papers into a case report -- or is that original research? Is it appropriate for me to do a science-based signed article on one or more specific cats? Howard C. Berkowitz 17:44, 28 December 2010 (UTC)
