About the Author
Aisling O’Keeffe is a veterinary surgeon from cork, Ireland. She has worked in small animal practice since qualifying 7 years ago, including 3 years in a feline-only veterinary hospital and currently works in a busy small animal clinic near Cork City. She has achieved an advanced certificate in feline behaviour from the International Society of Feline Medicine (ISFM) and a postgraduate certification in small animal medicine from University College Dublin.
She is passionate about feline behaviour and welfare and is keen to educate people on this topic. She got inspired to write the book after she completed her feline behaviour certificate. She learnt so much about cat behaviour that she wanted to share some of that information with others. Children are a great target audience for this as they don’t have any preconceived ideas about cats. They’re open to learning and to be educated about cats.
She has four cats, three dogs and two rabbits. She lives in an old renovated cottage in the country with her husband David.
