About this book

Describing feline behaviour from both a mechanistic and functional approach, The Behaviour of the Domestic Cat provides an accessible overview of this fascinating subject. The Behaviour of the Domestic Cat begins by addressing physiological, developmental and psychological aspects, with chapters on domestication, the development of the senses, learning, communication and feeding behaviour. The authors then build on this foundation to discuss social behaviour, hunting and predation, cat-human interactions and welfare. Fully updated throughout, this new edition also includes two new chapters on behavioural disorders due to pathologies and from misdirected natural behaviour. It is the essential source of cat behaviour information.
