Time, space and choices: Article about Purr

There is a wonderful article about my book, Purr, in the current issue of BARKS from the Guild.

It's called Time, Space and Choices: Improving Welfare for Shelter Cats with Dr. Zazie Todd's Purr.

It is all about how the tips in Purr: The Science of Making Your Cat Happy can help cats in shelter and rescue, as well as once they move to their new home. As you might guess from the title, giving the cat time to settle in, setting up their space right, and giving them choices (including letting them make the choice to hide) are all important.

Online chat about Purr and shelter cats

I will also be chatting about Purr and shelter cats at the PPG's online Shelter and Rescue Divisional Meetup on Tuesday March 28th at 10am Pacific/1pm Eastern.

This event is free for all members of The Pet Professional Guild. If you're a cat guardian, membership of the PPG is free. For pet professionals, the PPG is committed to force-free methods only and a membership is very worthwhile.

I hope to see you on Tuesday!
