Bite-Size CPD: Feline Behaviour
The cat is a popular pet and amongst the easiest of animals to live with. Cats are naturally clean, and self sufficient. Cats are social creatures but not in the same way as dogs or even humans are. When problem behaviours occur, they are very distressing for the owners. What some owners describe as "bad behaviour" is often very understandable from the cat’s perspective.
Understanding how cats "think" is an important first step in rectifying the problem.
Delegates will consider:
? Domestication of the cat
? How cats communicate and learn
? Common behavioural problems
Diploma and degree students and qualified veterinary nurses
