About me

Cats have been part of my life ever since I can remember. My cats and I have experienced all  types of living conditions: keeping them outdoors, keeping them indoors, or with access to both the indoors and outdoors. Each living arrangement has its own aspects. I have lived with my current cat, Leia, for more than 17 years now. Cats have taught me and have inspired me to learn more about their nature. Of course, everyone around me had noticed my passion, so they started to call me in case of any problems they were having.
I decided it was time to unleash my inner crazy cat lady!

I successfully graduated from the ATN (Academy for Animal Naturopathy) in Animal Psychology, specialising in cats, in 2017 and 2018.
My studies included:

  • Animal Training
  • Animal Cognition
  • Stress and Neurobiological Relationship of Emotions
  • Ethology of Wild and Domestic Cats – Husbandry, Interaction, Learning
  • Activities and Games for Cats
