Seed Talks: The Psychology of Cats with Dr Jon Bowen

Wednesday 29th May 2024
19:00 -
21:30

What do cats need to keep them happy? What are the rules cats expect us to follow when we interact with them? Why do cats ask for attention but then sometimes object when we stroke them? Where do cats go and what do they get up to when they leave the house? How have cats learned tricks to secretly manipulate us to get what they want? These are just some of the questions we’ll answer in this wide-ranging talk about the secret lives of cats.

Doors open at 7pm, talk starts at 7.30pm – come down early to grab a good seat!
