Feline behaviour: In this seven-unit course (the final unit is a double one), you will examine the nature of Felis catus as a hyper-carnivore, their physiological and anatomical requirements to be able to make informed decisions as to their enrichment and welfare. Feline physiology relevant to behaviour is covered and how their physiology determines their behaviour.

You will investigate the cat-human relationship, species-specific music and the science behind its calming effects on the domestic cat. Finally, you will carry out a behavioural study on Felis catus and report your findings.
