Looking to learn more about cats, or the origin of cats? Find out more as part of our online learning modules

Our online courses

We have a single clear vision at Cats Protection. A world where every cat is treated with kindness and an understanding of its needs.

Our online courses have been designed to give you an appreciation of your cat’s needs, how this relates to their behaviour and how to provide the best environment for them. The House Plan ensures your home is cat-friendly, while our new Understanding Cats’ Needs course is ideal for those curious to know more about cat ancestry.

New Understanding Cats’ Needs course

Our latest course introduces you to three cats, using their experiences to help you understand the needs of your own cat – whether they are in a home or living in a rescue environment. Find out more about the origins of the African Wildcat and how their behaviour is similar to that of your pet cat, or find out more about the needs of cats living in shelter care.

The House Plan

Whether you’re new to cats or are lifelong cat-owner, you’ll no doubt want to make them feel happy in their home. Cats Protection’s House Plan has been created as a fun way to help you think about where to put essential resources, like litter trays and water bowls, throughout your home.
