Feline-Human Relations 101 is Temporarily Unavailable
** ANNOUNCEMENT ** Feline-Human Relations will be taking a brief respite for the next several months. However, this announcement page will remain posted and updated with new information as events become available. In the meantime, plz learn more about the direction of our Meetup groups from previous classes archived at http://TheMeetupProfessor.com/ Example Class **** A Feline Guide to the Holidays http://photos3.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/2/5/8/e/event_19989614.jpegEnd of the year holidays are traditionally a festive time of feasting, gift-giving, and being thankful for all the blessings that we have. It is a time to also celebrate relationships, and certainly our cats (and other animals) should not be excluded. Unfortunately, many are unaware of the special circumstances that holidays impose for the care and well-being of our cats. November-December holidays invoke the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. The good, of course is what we all wish to promote so that our cats can participate and enjoy with us all aspects of these festive events. Yet always we must be watchful for what may turn bad. For example, digestive upsets due to consuming inappropriate (human) foods and seasonal plants (often regarded as poisonous). Stress can be induced by visitors and overzealous children invading a cat's normally sedate and regimented home. Some of these situations have the potential for turning ugly. Like, when Kitty swallows the meat-flavored cord from a roasted turkey or metallic tinsel from the Christmas tree. Or, perhaps suffers a leg broken or severed tail when Grandpa closes the reclining chair before Kitty has had a chance to scoot away. When frightened cats, open doors, and inexperienced guests combine, remember that the result may wind up being a missing Kitty! In this session of Feline-Human Relations 101, we will address the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly side of year-end holidays specifically from the point of view of our cats. Once identified, means to circumvent such hazards will be presented and discussed. During the second hour in accordance with our meeting format, time will be available to address any questions or situations related to cats that individuals are experiencing and have brought to this group for advice and, where possible, resolution. ==== PLEASE NOTE: Much of the information presented in Feline-Human Relations 101 is widely accepted and practiced throughout the feline rescue community. Other recommendations are derived from the experience and knowledge of the instructor. However, in neither case are guarantees stated or implied that these methods will work 100% of the time.

    What we're about

    Cats are unique among all companions who live with humans, not only for a strong remembrance of their wild heritage, but also for the depth of relationships of which they are capable. Alternately worshiped, vilified, tolerated, and loved, throughout the ages this small animal has remained unwavering in their loyalty to humans - but always on their terms. Those who have experienced a complete relationship understand the abilities of these sensitive and intuitive creatures.

    This Meetup is designed for all who desire to develop or enhance a strong and lasting relationship with their feline companion(s). The first half of each session will be devoted to presentation and discussion of the topic indicated. However, time in the second half is reserved to address any questions or circumstances regarding their cats that individuals may wish to bring to this group for advice, and where possible, resolution. Note - these meetings are free and open to all.
