Ever wondered how well you really know your cat or the cats you work with? Then this course is for you! Aimed at cat owners and feline enthusiasts, this course will give you an introduction into the reasons cats behave in the way they do and how we as owners and cat care givers can best provide for their behavioural needs.
The course will cover the following modules:
Module 1: What am I and where did I come from?
Learning about the behavioural ecology, evolution and domestication of the cat will help you understand what makes a cat a cat.
Module 2: Senses and communication
Getting to grips with the feline senses and how they are utilised in communication will help you understand the best ways to interact with cats, as well as how to manage cat–cat relationships.
Module 3: Understanding welfare and emotions
By being able to recognise the different emotions cats can feel, we are able to assess our cats’ welfare.
Module 4: Creating a cat friendly home
Put your newly found knowledge into practice and develop the skills to help cats lead as stress-free lives as possible at home.
Module 5: Behaviours that cause problems
By gaining an understanding of problem behaviours in cats – how to prevent them, what causes them, what behavioural first aid is appropriate and when more specialist help is needed – you will be better equipped to take the right action.
"A really useful introductory course - well-presented and easy to digest. Thank you."
"I just absolutely enjoyed this course so much. Having studied with you previously I was excited to do this course and use this lockdown time and my quiet work time effectively and learn more to help me in my job as a professional cat sitter. I was able to help and advise some of my cat clients on a very basic first aid response which this course enabled me to do."
"I am very pleased to have found and taken this course. The amount of work that you put into it is amazing. You should be very proud of what you have produced; the material and the details, the videos, the pictures make this an outstanding course."

However, it will be of great use for anyone wishing to pursue a career in clinical animal behaviour or for those already qualified, by providing a solid foundation in many aspects of cat behaviour.
