Summary
"Practical Feline Behaviour contains all the relevant information that anyone involved with the care of house cats needs to understand in order to handle feline behaviour and improve welfare. There have been ground-breaking advances in our understanding of feline behaviour in recent years and, to protect the welfare of cats, it is increasingly important that anyone involved with their care, especially those in a professional capacity, keep up to date with these developments. This approachable and down-to-earth text describes the internal and external influences on feline behaviour; on communication, learning, social behaviour, the relationship between behaviour and disease, and the cat-human relationship. It also provides practical advice on how the welfare of cats in our care may be protected and how behaviour problems should be addressed and avoided. In this book Trudi Atkinson draws on her extensive experience as a veterinary nurse and a Certified Clinical Animal Behaviourist to provide a rapid reference and an intensely practical feline behaviour resource for owners, breeders, veterinary professionals, shelter and cattery workers and anyone in involved in the care of our feline companions."--Back cover
