Celia Haddon is a journalist, author and animal behaviourist.

Over the years she has written a number of books on a variety of different subjects, but there’s one topic in particular that stands out – cats.

When it comes to felines Celia is an expert, having written nine books on the animals and their relationships with humans.

Her latest book, ‘A Cat’s Guide to Humans’, was ‘written by’ George the cat, who also has a blog that Celia writes.

“This book was a natural next step from George’s blog,” explained Celia, who lives in Cirencester.

“It’s a bit of fun, all about cat owners from the mind of a cat.”

Celia wrote a pet column and was a “pet agony aunt” for The Daily Telegraph for 20 years, helping owners of all types of pets with challenges that come with taking care of an animal.

She went on to gain a first class honours degree in applied animal behaviour in 2010 before doing a masters degree in clinical animal behaviour at Lincoln University.

“My behaviour advice is science based,” she added.

Celia has been living in Cirencester for around three months – “it’s such a nice place to live,” she says – after living most of her life in Oxfordshire.

She lives with her two cats, Tilly and Toby, and regularly updates George the cat’s blog on subjects relating to cat ownership.

Her previous books have included ‘The Joy of Cats’ and ‘Cats Behaving Badly’, but she says this latest book is different to anything she’s done before.

“Cats see us as really weird creatures,” continued Celia.

“This book is from their point of view and the weird things we do, like selfies and how we wash ourselves with water because we’re too stiff to use our tongues.”
