Duration: 2 Days

Pounce is a two-day, virtual conference on the application, theory, and current research in cat behavior and training.

 

Professionals working with cats, dogs, in shelters, and in rescues will find rich resources on working effectively with the often-overlooked member of the household.

 

Pain and behavior, training and socialization, fostering, toileting, enrichment in colony cats, applied behavior analysis in work with cats, understanding factors that influence individuality and much more will be discussed by this expert group of presenters and researchers.

 

We are offering 15 sliding scale scholarships to Black, Indigenous, and other people of color interested in furthering their professional knowledge of cats.

Each presentation is approximately 1 hour in length and will be followed with a live 30 minute Q&A session with the speaker.
