Purpose

I have always loved cats and with love came fascination. Although there are ~600 million cats living in homes worldwide, little is known about their behavior and cognition, especially when compared to the body of research on human’s other companion- the domestic dog.

Through scientific research we can better understand the the social relationships cats have with one another, the mechanisms cats use to communicate with humans, and the human-cat bond. This information will bring a better understanding of our feline companions and hopefully lead to healthier, more species appropriate ways of forming human-cat relationships.

  1. Hi I was wondering if you know how to introduce a kitten to an adult cat (5 years old) the kitten is 4.5 months old. We have been trying feeding them through the door for roughly 4 days but it’s not working. Every time he goes near her she tries to attack. If they don’t get along we need to return him which I don’t want to do. Please help! Thank you in advance
