In two recent TV appearances, I answered some common questions about cats.

Cats don't get a lot of publicity, but many people have questions about their feline friends. So I was delighted to have the opportunity to answer two common questions about cats on Global TV.

First up, I spoke with The Morning Show about how to make your cat happy. Watch it below.



We talk about the fact that cats aren't actually low maintenance pets and will do better if we put more effort into our relationship with cats. As well we talk about how to tell if your cat is happy or stressed, and what you can do to make them happier. And viewers sent in their questions (complete with adorable footage of their cats) so I answer those questions too.

Then, I spoke with Global News Morning BC for their Ask an Expert segment on cat happiness. Watch it below to learn more about feline happiness. 



We talk about how cats like having their owners at home, why people think that cats don't like to be around their owners, doing consent tests when you pet your cat, and how to help your cat adjust as you head back to work. And there's some adorable footage of kitties too.
