Telecourses: The Nature of Cats

Feline Behavior Series Launches with
“The Nature of Cats” and
Environmental Enrichment Techniques for Cats in the Home and the Shelter


Instructor: Daniel Q. Estep, Ph.D., CAAB & Suzanne Hetts, Ph.D., CAAB

For a number of years cats have outnumbered dogs as the most common species of pet. Cat ownership numbers continue to rise yet the number of feline veterinary visits is declining. Many shelters handle more cats than dogs yet often their enrichment and post adoption support programs focus on dogs more than cats. Cats have long been referred to as the misunderstood and under-served pet species.

We’ve been educating people about cat behavior and proposing guidelines for behaviorally healthy felines since the early 1990s, and most recently with our DVDs “Helping Kitty Be Good By Creating a Cat Friendly Home” and “Helping Kitties Co-Exist”. We’ve lectured at APDT, Groom Expo, AAHA and other veterinary conferences on cat behavior, written about feline behavior wellness in JAVMA and now we want to help more people learn about cat behavior.

We are offering the first in a series of teleclasses/webcasts on cat behavior. This first session will provide the basis for the rest of the series. If you don’t have the information contained in our first class “The Nature of Cats”, you’ll have no foundation upon which to base improved handling skills, environmental enrichment, problem prevention and problem solving which will be topics for subsequent classes in our series on Feline Behavior.

“THE NATURE OF CATS”, a 1.5 hour teleclass, simultaneous webcast will introduce you to the behavioral world of the cat and provide a foundation for subsequent classes on handling skills, environmental enrichment, problem prevention and problem solving. You’ll learn about the intriguing, flexible feline social system, differences between canine and feline communication signals, the truth regarding common myths about cat behavior that may surprise you and come away more equipped to see the world through a cat’s eyes.

Whether you are a dog trainer who often encounters cats in homes with dogs, a veterinarian who wants to cater to cats a bit more and attract more cat owning clients, a veterinary technician who wants to be better equipped to educate cat owners, or shelter staff who want your facility to do better by the cats in your care, this Feline Behavior series is for you.

To maximize learning, class size will be limited so register NOW to claim your place in class.
