Fearful shelter cats are numerous in our shelters. If they are not euthanized because of lack of resources, they can spend months in shelters or in foster families with few improvements. While the term feral does not apply to these cats, they do lack the tools to deal with strangers and new places.

Can we help them gain these tools? Can we change their view of strangers? Can we bring them to a state where their chances of getting adopted and of staying in that home are now good? Join us to think about cats, about the constructional approach and about re-evaluating how we are currently working with fearful cats and why. This presentation will use videos and examples to illustrate the subject.

Learning Objectives

  • To understand the particularities of cats.
  • To understand what C.A.T. with cats is and why we would want to use it.
  • To geek out on the science of behavior behind it.
  • To get you interested in working with cats!

About The Presenter

Caroline Crevier-Chabot

A civil engineer by training, Caroline always loved animals and found in the science of behavior a true passion. After learning about clicker training through canine freestyle back in 2006, she gradually learned more about behavior and eventually moved to the cat side, clicker training her own cats to do things like getting down trees the “proper” cat way (butt first). Through volunteering at two different shelters, she started to reflect on better ways to care for and rehab fearful shelter cats. Caroline has been fostering fearful cats since 2018 and films her training a lot. She hopes sharing these experiences and thoughts will foster more discussion on cats and on better ways to help them.
