About the courses

We are pleased to announce two new qualifications

from International Cat Care and the International Society of Feline Medicine

Whether you simply own a cat or work with cats professionally, it is important that all cats in your care are not only physically healthy but behaviourally healthy too – that is free from distress and able to perform the behaviours that in essence, make a cat, a cat.

Our aim is to provide everyone with an interest in cats, a comprehensive understanding of what a cat is (eg, its free-ranging behaviour, development, learning capacity, emotional complexity, communicative abilities, relationships with us, to name just a few topics) so that they can fully understand the behavioural needs of the species, and utilise such knowledge to develop the practical skills to improve its well-being.

We are offering two courses in feline behaviour, one specifically for the veterinary profession and one for cat owners and those working with cats in non-veterinary professions.

A course for cat owners and non-veterinary cat professionals

Note: While both courses are designed to give the learner an overview of the various problem behaviours can occur in cats, neither course is designed to teach you to become a qualified cat behaviourist. However, these courses 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.
