Sharing insights on Animal Behaviour

Posted in Haven Blog tagged , , , , , , , at 2:15 pm by havenoftheheart

We often get questions on how to deal with dogs and cats with behavioural problems, sadly this is a common reason/excuse for owners to give up on their pets. Here is an insightful video on animal behaviour we would like to share with you.

Dr. Laurel Braitman is a science historian who wants to know: Why is your cat so sad? For her book Animal Madness, the TED Fellow delves into the history of mental illness in animals, revealing a world of parrots that pluck themselves, cats with PTSD and donkeys with deep neuroses. Braitman holds a PhD in history and anthropology of science from MIT and works as an affiliate artist at the Headlands Center for the Arts.
