Your Cat’s Emotional Connection

Your Cat’s Emotional Connection

As cat guardians, we spend a lot of time trying to ensure that our cats are happy and healthy.  This includes not only their physical welfare, but understanding our own role in our cat's emotional connection with us.  We can tell when our cats are happy and content, anxious, scared or fearful, or irritated.  Which is great - the more aware of how our kitties are feeling, the better we are able to meet their needs.

Meet Louis: A Handsome Devil with Fear Aggression

One of the great things about the cat behavior community is that other behaviorists seem to support each other through promotion and sometimes, through the referral of clients. I was fortunate to be introduced to Sally and her cat, Louis, through The Contented Cat, who specializes in animal reiki. Louis is a handsome 6-year-old cat who was raised by Sally's daughters, who got him when he was a kitten. Up until a couple of years ago, Louis was friendly to everyone - he'd never met a stranger, and was affectionate and gentle with everyone who crossed his path.
