Telecourses: Environmental Enrichment for Cats in the Home and the Shelter


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

As you learned in The Nature of Catsclass cats are quite complex creatures and their behavioral needs often go unrecognized and unmet. Now that you have a better understanding of cat behavior, in this class we’ll put that information to use and discuss strategies for proving a quality environment for cats, in both home and shelter settings.

When cats are stressed or “bored” their quality of life decreases, they are more prone to chronic, stress related health problems; fear, avoidance and aggressive behaviors increase, resulting in cats appearing less adoptable and not reaching their potential as family companions.

This 90 minute simultaneous teleclass/webcast will build on what was covered in “The Nature of Cats”, and discuss what makes for a quality cat environment and practical strategies for creating it in both the home and the shelter. We’ll discuss what’s important in the cat’s physical environment, the social environment, as well as the important factors of complexity, control, familiarity and predictability. We’ll also explore training and socialization as environmental enrichment techniques.

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