Katt–människa-kommunikation: Vokala, visuella och taktila signaler

Projekt: Forskning

Projektinformation

Beskrivning

Little is known about how cats—one of our most popular pets—and humans communicate with each other. Yet, well-functioning communication is crucial for a meaningful relationship with our pets to avoid euthenasia or abandonment due to unwanted behaviours. The project will record, analyse vocal, visual and tactile signals in cat–human interactions and relate them to measures of welfare. The goal is to improve cat–human communication by developing an online guide with descriptions and examples.
