National Cat Day with Patience Fisher
October 29 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Calling all Cat Lovers! Tuesday, October 29, 2019 is National Cat Day!
To celebrate, Humane Animal Rescue has invited Patience Fisher, of Patience for Cats, to present a one-hour presentation on cat behavior! The cost is only $5 to cover our expenses.
The event will take place on Tuesday October 29, 2019 at the Humane Animal Rescue East End Shelter at 6:00pm and will last for one hour. This is a great presentation that will be helpful for anyone who loves cats and wants to learn more about living happily with them.
Patience is an Associate Certified Cat Behavior Consultant, with a BS in Biology and a MS in Engineering.
Because research and animal behavior were always her passion, in 2006 she began working with cats and adopters at an animal shelter, and fostering and training the cats with behavioral problems. She fostered 30 such cats, many of whom were introduced to her cats to see if they could be adopted out to multi-cat households. This gave her multiple experiences with different cats’ reactions to being introduced to resident cats.
Patience got her certificate in Veterinary Assistance in 2010, and her diploma in Feline Behavior and Technology in 2015. After receiving her diploma, she began writing articles for both the Pet Professional Guild (PPG) and the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants (IAABC).
In 2016, Patience started her own company, Patience for Cats LLC. Since then she has helped many clients whose cats were peeing outside the box, spraying, being aggressive to other cats, or being aggressive to people. She has also trained cats to do many things, including coming when called, going in a box and waiting, entering a carrier, and letting a person trim their claws.
Patience continues to build on her education by attending conferences and courses offered by the IAABC, PPG, and the American Association of Feline Practitioners.
She has been published many times in both BARKS from the Guild and The IAABC Journal.
