This webinar will be a roller-coaster ride through the basics of feline psychology and behaviour. Normal and abnormal cat behaviour will be discussed with an emphasis on how to read body language and recognize signs of fear and anxiety. Common behavioural problems and diagnoses will be covered.
We will focus on how to live harmoniously with our domestic cats and provide for their needs to ensure they live optimal, happy and healthy lives. Recommendations for addressing behavioural problems in cats via multi-modal, scientific and ethical interventions will be a core component.
The aim of this webinar is to provide education and practically applicable information on the basics of feline behaviour and psychology with emphasis on feline behavioural needs and common pathologies such as fear and anxiety.
