IamA cat expert and anthrozoologist who has been researching the behavior and welfare of domestic cats for more than 20 years. AMA!
My short bio: I’m Foundation Director of the Anthrozoology Institute at the University of Bristol in the UK, and author of CAT SENSE and DOG SENSE. My specific areas of research include: social behavior and communication between cats, cat-owner communication and relationships, interpretation of “play” behavior in cats (and dogs); cat domestication; “personality” in cats; and the effects of neutering on cat populations.
