Ever wonder why cats sit in any box they fit?
Or how to get them to reliably use the litter box EVERY time?
Do you like to show off pictures and share stories of your cat with others who “get” you?

The Purrfect Cat Club for (Totally Sane) Cat-Lovers

Maow Club

Our exclusive membership club is the purrfect place for you!

Maow Club is a club for cat lovers to learn about cats, talk about cats, and share their love for all things cats with other (totally sane) cat people. The club is hosted by Alice Cat Expert – renowned cat behaviour consultant, writer & educator.

Most cat behavioural problems are caused by a misunderstanding between humans and cats. In this club, our members learn to interpret their cat’s behaviour so that they can develop a deeper understanding of their needs, resolve frustrations on both sides, & have a closer bond with their feline friend.

If you want to understand your cat better and make sure your cat lives a happy life with you, you are in the right place!

By being in a supportive and non-judgemental environment, we can all make bigger progress together to improve cat welfare – of our own cats and cats in general. This is what Maow Club membership is all about, join us on this journey!

All the content are based all five stages that a cat lover may go through, and curated to suit your level to prevent overwhelm.

So no matter what your cat-experience level, there’s something here for you.

Who is Alice? 

Hi, I’m Alice Chau-Ginguene a cat behaviourist, writer, educator, advocate based in Dublin, Ireland. For over a decade, I have worked with thousands of cats and their humans, to educate and to find harmony in their living space. When I am not working with cats, I am writing about cats.

After working with families in different countries around the world, I have noticed most of the cat “problems” are not really problems, but rather a misunderstanding between cat and human sharing a living space, and a solution can be found through education.

I am passionate to help cat lovers by explaining cat behavioural science in simple and fun language, so that they can develop a deeper understanding of their cat’s needs, confident that their cat is happy & have a closer bond with their feline friends. 

I have been featured on numerous media both in Ireland and abroad – RTE, Virgin Media, Irish Times, Irish Independent, Newsweek, Irish Examiner, etc. I have published a Cat Care Guide in English and Chinese during the pandemic, to help tens of thousands of new cat parents around the world who discovered the joy of having cats in their lives during the lockdown. 

I am also a Pet First Response instructor and Missing Animal Response Technician.

I speak English, French, Cantonese and Mandarin, and can serve you in all of these languages. I also have Level 1 on Irish Sign Language.

Fun fact: I have travelled 10627.48 km over the years together with my cat Larmlarm when we moved from Hong Kong to Paris, then to Dublin. A very well travelled cat who has travelled with no problem on the plane, on the ship and on the car. 

Join me on this journey. I look forward to seeing you at our next member’s event!

Who is this for? 

Any cat lovers!

  • If you’re a beginner who got a new cat recently
  • If you have had cats for a while but want to learn more about them to become the best cat parent you could be
  • If you have had cats for many years and thinking about working with cats one day. We got you covered!
  • Enjoy science-based content
  • Want to meet like-minded cat lovers in a non-judgement, drama-free environment.

This membership is not for you if…

  • You don’t believe in science-based cat care information (“well, it didn’t do my cat any harm…”)
  • You believe there is only one way to care for your cat (“Every cat should be indoor only” “Cats should never be shaved ever!”)
  • You are judgmental and catty 

Instead of wondering if your cat is happy, you know how they feel by reading their body language. 

Instead of wondering how to solve your cat’s behaviour problem, you have direct access to expert and community support. 

Instead of browsing on the internet to look for solution, you save time by getting curated, reliable, science-based information at your fingertips. 

We can all improve cat welfare – of our own cats and cats in general by learning more about their behaviour. Let’s go on this journey together!

“I joined this membership over a year ago to get in touch with other cat lovers and to learn all about kittys and how they work. Educational, fun, interesting and music night are the words that come to mind when I think of Maow Club.

I’ve learned lots about cats and their behaviour. Found out interesting information about other cultures and countries. Spent many afternoons and evenings chatting with people I probably wouldn’t have chatted to otherwise, which is pretty cool in itself.

I’d highly recommend Maow Club because it’s a great place to “meet” new people and learn lots about cats, and about other topics as well”

Some people have travelled with their cats”
