In addition, there will real education for people who care about cats. For example, one of the greatest Cubs fans on earth, Veterinary behaviorist Dr. Melissa Bain of the University of California, Davis will talk about meeting the environmental needs of cats. Other speakers will be supported by the American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP). I talk with Dr. Houlihan about how many cat owners, millennials and others, are actually seeking to learn more about cats. Here’s a website created by AAFP which has tons of great content.
The keynote on Sunday morning will be Becky Robinson, co-founder of Alley Cat Allies who will talk about unowned community cats, and why they matter too! And trap-neuter-return-vaccinate.
On Saturday morning I am the keynote speaker with a talk I call “Cats: The Rodney Dangerfield of Pets.” I am also speaking about how to encourage cats to scratch in all the right places both how to use behavior modification and a new pheromone product called Feliscratch And I will participate in an event called “Love Letters to Cats.”
