The Stratford Library will host Feline Behaviorist Stephen Quandt for “Decoding the Mysteries of Cats or Why Cats Do What They Do!” on a special webinar on Tuesday, May 4th from 6:30-7:30 pm. The program, which is free and open to the public, will be held on the Library’s Zoom platform.

Stephen Quandt has created a feline behavior webinar for shelters and vet practices that explains cat behavior from the perspective of the evolutionary and adaptive forces that help shape their lives. The animal’s relationship with their owners is influenced by the mother/kitten relationship that they experienced and that connects them to their owners through food needs, attention seeking and the status with their most favored and/or least favored people. The relationship cats have between Hunger, Appetite, Metabolism and Exercise will be explored in the webinar.

Quandt began working with cats in 2002 both with the New York City ASPCA and nationwide with the Field Investigations and Response Team on large scale criminal cruelty cases and natural disasters.

Most recently he worked as the feline behavior coordinator for the Animal Care Centers of NYC. Quandt is now in private practice as a feline behaviorist who specializes in compassionate, educational and affordable care for the cat.

“Decoding the Mysteries of Cats” will include a Q&A with the speaker following his talk which begins at 6:30 pm on Tuesday, May 4. To register for the program visit:
