SUBJECT INDEX TO CAVY CAPERS JULY/AUGUST 1999 TO DEC 2015

Omitted from this index are show results and judges’ critiques on the grounds that they are easily located. The emphasis is on articles on cavy health and husbandry. Some articles have been reprinted from other newsletters, particularly Cavies, or from websites. I have indicated this only by putting "reprint" in square brackets as the full source, acknowledgments and permission to reprint notices appear in Cavy Capers. Prior to April 2001, the newsletter did not have page numbers. This index is updated quarterly (roughly).

PLEASE NOTE THAT MOST ISSUES ARE NOW OUT OF PRINT AND NO LONGER AVAILABLE FROM THE CLUB. However, I am willing to scan as PDF or jpeg and email individual articles as long as you don't ask for too many at once. No more than two or three, please.
