What Is My Cat Saying? @ Marin Humane
Sep 16 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm

Cats are probably one of the most misunderstood of all domestic animals. Myths and Myth-understandings abound!

Would you like to better understand what your cat is saying and how your body language affects your communication with your feline friends? Carole Byrnes, creator of the “What is My Dog Saying?” power point for dog trainers has collaborated on this project with Certified Cat Behavior Consultant Jacqueline Munera of Positive Cattitudes to create a workshop for those interested in learning more about reading cat body language. This program will give you new insights into cat behavior.
