- Giving advice and support on feline behaviour cases. One of the main things a Cat Behaviourist is concerned with is how to educate cat owners, so they understand how to manage their cat’s stress levels
- Creating resources such as The Behaviour Guide to advise volunteers and staff on how best to look after cats and meet their needs
- Working with the Learning & Development team to develop programmes to enhance learning on cat behaviour
- Approving all content that the charity releases from a behaviour point of view – this includes everything from video footage to articles in The Cat magazine
You’ll need a degree in animal behaviour or an equivalent professional qualification, as well as experience working professionally with cats. The ability to work under pressure and have the self-motivation to work on your own initiative is important too.
Cat behaviour! From ensuring that cats in our centres are well looked after to providing support to members of the public, this is a role that involves speaking to a range of people – as well as looking after cat welfare, of course!
