About this course

Are you a Cat Person? According to a Veterinary Survey in 2010 people who are more highly educated were 1.4 times more likely to own a cat than a dog. Of course, this does not imply that cat people are smarter than dog people but that there's a link between higher education and longer work hours.
Cats are less time-consuming than dogs, and so people who work longer hours will be more likely to choose cats as pets to fit in with their work life. Cats are amongst the world’s most popular pets, found living the good life alongside humans across the globe. However, their past behaviour has been a little bit more of a mystery.
This self-paced Online Certificate course on Cat Psychology acts as a guide and resource to help you understand cats better.
