This is the first of six webinars in the Keeping Cats in Homes series. Many cats lose their homes because of behavior problems like inappropriate elimination, scratching and cat-to-cat aggression. But cat behavior problems are easier to solve than we think, and many of the cats that come to our doors or wind up on the streets could have stayed happily in their homes if we only had the knowledge and expertise to help their owners work through their issues. This webinar will explore 5 Big Ideas about cat behavior that serve as a foundation for providing effective cat behavior counseling to owners, and will give you the insights you need to help keep cats in their homes and out of harm’s way.
