Are cats loners? Are they aloof and don't care about human? We cat lovers know these are not true!
"Feline Mythbuster - Introduction to cat behaviour" delivered by Alice Chau-Ginguene is going to answer all these questions and more!
We are going to learn that cats not only have an intimate and important relationship with human for thousands of years of history, but also get a better understanding of their behaviour. For example: why is it so difficult to get them to drink water?
We will learn how to establish a satisfying cat-human relationship at home and in the community.
Alice will also talk a little about some of the latest scientific development in the cat world.
There will be an Q&A session at the end and will have time to chat among cat lovers.

Alice Chau-Ginguene is a cat behaviourist based in Dublin. She has worked with over thousand of cats in her career and have been featured in various media in Ireland. She is available for public lecture engagements on cat behaviour, starting your own business, Pet First Aid and related subjects.
