Anxious Cats of Australia

Community • A private Facebook group for Australians dealing with anxious cats.

Help your anxious cat by getting advice from other cat parents.

Got a cat that’s anxious, stressed, aggressive, fearful, or timid? This private Facebook group aims to help owners deal with these types of cats. It advocates the use of force-free, science-based training methods that are recommended by modern training organisations.

What is the criteria for joining?

Aside from sharing their postcode, applicants need to reveal if they own a cat, and their reason for joining said group.

Who’s behind it?

This community was created by Pet Behaviour Vet, which provides house visits and phone consultations in Sydney, Illawarra, Central Coast, and Newcastle.

What makes this group unique?

With less than 1,000 members, this small community promises to nurture a safe online space for owners of stressed kittens and cats. As mentioned in their “About This Group” section, Anxious Cats of Australia does not recommend the use of aversive methods (shock, physical punishment, and scruffing, to name a few), so only positive training methods are shared in the discussions.

How can I join the community?
