Rehomed Cats Welfare Study


Hello everyone

I am currently a degree student studying Animal Science with Plymouth University. This short questionnaire is an integral part of a research project I am undertaking to assess the health and welfare conditions of stray/feral cats that have been rehomed as domestic pets. I am specifically concerned with the development of obesity in these animals.

All information provided will be regarded as anonymous and will be used solely for the purpose of the research project.

The questionnaire itself is very short, and should take no longer than a couple of minutes to complete.
Please see the scoring sheet link.

Thank you in advance to those who take the time to read this and complete the questionnaire!

The link to the questionnaire:

I have two rescue cats, one is obese and we struggle with her weight, I have filled the survey in for her.
The other, also a rescue and not obese but am unable to fill in the survey for him as it doesnt allow it.

Re: Rehomed Cats Welfare Study


Hi

Links to surveys or questionnaires are no longer allowed. Instead please post all questions into a thread (along with possible options if there are any) then anyone wishing to fill in the questionnaire can do so in the thread easily and quickly, eg, 1A, 2C, 3A, 4B etc

This way everyone can see the questions posted but also get a chance to see the 'results'. Additionally, email harvesting can not take place.
