Cats are often seen as mysterious creatures, but there's a lot we can do to understand cats better. This talk will cover essential information about cat behaviour, from the sensitive period for socialization to how to set up the cat’s environment and resources to help keep stress levels low. Cats have amazing noses and we will look at the role of chemical signals (including the use of synthetic pheromones). We will also look at how to read feline body language and in particular, how to recognize signs of stress. Training cats is becoming increasingly popular so we’ll consider how to train a cat and look at what are the most useful things to teach them. You will gain a better general understanding of cat behaviour as well as specific tips for a happier cat and where to find resources if extra help is needed. Of interest to cat guardians as well as people who work with cats, including dog trainers who take dog-cat cases.
