Our feline family members provide us endless hours of entertainment and love... but some of their behavioural "quirks" (such as aggression, fearfulness, furniture scratching, and excessive vocalization) can be very frustrating and difficult to manage. This webinar will arm you with a better understanding of the reason why these behaviours may emerge, and provide strategies for reducing (and hopefully, eliminating!) them in your home. Suitable for: Cat owners, animal trainers, new adopters, shelter workers Presenter Bio: Dr. Jacklyn Ellis is the Manager, Feline Behaviour, Rehabilitation and Enrichment Programs at the Toronto Humane Society. Prior to joining THS, Dr. Ellis served as Nestlé Purina’s leading authority on feline behaviour in her role as a Behaviour Scientist in their research and development division. She earned her PhD in Animal Welfare at the Atlantic Veterinary College, University of Prince Edward Island, where she conducted research on methods for reducing stress in shelter cats. Her work has been published widely in peer reviewed journals and she has presented at many national and international conferences, particularly on feline stress and elimination behaviour. She is currently in the process of writing a chapter on feline behavioural assessment for a new edition of the leading textbook on the behaviour and welfare of shelter animals.
