About the course

Cats are often considered to be independent, and able to look after themselves whereas dogs are usually perceived to 'need' their owners. Whilst cats are pretty good at surviving without us, they do of course have biological and ethological needs.

To enjoy a mutually beneficial relationship with a cat, and to minimise the chance of a behaviour problem occurring, an understanding of these basic needs is important. With a look at a wildcat species of similar size that shares common ancestry with our domestic pet, we can perhaps better understand the origin and bases of many of these needs.
