Cat Behaviour Basics

Ideal for ages 14 yrs +

Over 10 people have attended this class


Our feline friends can make the most rewarding companions, but we know that sometimes they can have some quirky behaviour!  We know that while every cat has common behavioural traits, cats also have their  own unique personality too! Understanding your cat is the best way to address these behavoural concerns.

RSPCA Victoria is here to help with a special Q&A session with our resident Animal Behaviour Consultant Jade Currie to give you the opportunity to address your cat’s unique behavioural concerns. 

After completing the free online module on cat behaviour, you will get the opportunity to ask Jade any questions you have about your own cat’s behaviour in order to give you the opportunity to get the best out of them and keep them happy and healthy.

The free learning module can be found here: Cat and Dog Body Language

My son (aged 13) found the presentation really interesting. He has two cats and thinks he knows them pretty well but he learned a lot.
