Join us for this unique collaboration in which a Veterinary Behaviorist and a Cat Behavior Consultant explore aggression in cats. Our feline friends do not receive much attention when it comes to behavior issues compared to their canine counterparts. Many cat guardians don't even know that they can get professional help to resolve cat aggression issues in the home. Cat Land is NOT the same as Dog World. While the learning principles are the same, there are important species differences that can challenge the best of us. We will start by learning more about the natural history of cats and how it impacts their social behaviors. Then we will discuss underlying causes of aggression, diagnostic categories, behavioral first aid, and comprehensive treatment options including medications. Cats who hiss, growl, swat, or bite can get better with treatment. Part 1: Now I Bite You: Aggression to Humans In part one, we'll be focusing specifically on aggression directed at humans: types, causes, and treatments, both medical and behavioral. Part 2: Making up is Hard to Do: Aggression to Other Cats Part two looks at aggression between cats in the home: play vs. non-play-based aggression, how each presents, assessing underlying mechanisms, and how medical and behavioral treatments can create peace in the home. These webinars are suitable for veterinary professionals, animal trainers, animal behaviorists, shelter and rescue staff and volunteers, pet guardians, and anyone with an interest in evidence-based behavior intervention.
