Free Cat Education

Looking for something different to teach your children during lockdown? Check out our resources for teachers at

Or maybe you are thinking of homing a new cat, or wondering why your existing cat behaves in the way it does? Cats Protection have launched a new FREE online educational course, which might just provide the answers!

Cats Protection has a single and clear vision - a world where every cat is treated with kindness and an understanding of its needs. Understanding Feline Origins (UFO) is designed to give you an appreciation of the ancestry of cats, how this makes them the cats they are today and how to ensure their specific needs are met.

  • Courses are available at any time and can be worked through in one go or in bite size chunks, which ever suits you best
  • UFO is based on a course delivered to Cats Protection staff and volunteers and is therefore ideally suited for adults and older children
  • The course is free to everyone! 

Please share it with your friends:

Why not share what you have learnt from UFO on Facebook or Twitter
