From the Cat Division
What factors lead some cats to develop behavior problems? And what effect does early experience have on kitten behavioral development? There are still many elusive and unanswered questions, but a new study brings us a little closer to understanding some of the relationships between age of spay/neuter (s/n), household variables (such as number of other pets, use of punishment), kitten personality factors (such as fearfulness) and report of behavior problems by owners.
From the Parrot Division
Animals have always been a part of my life. Especially parrots and other birds are a large part of my family and my profession. After my degree as M.Sc. Biology I continued learning more about the human – animal – bond.
