Hello! Educators & media colleagues!
Thank you for visiting my page. If you are an educator looking for guest speakers
or media colleague looking for a good story, you have come to the right place!
Growing up, she didn’t know she would scoop cat poop for a living…
Alice Chau-Ginguene is a Cat Behaviourist, writer, educator and advocate. For over a decade, Alice has worked with thousands of cats and their humans, to educate and to find harmony in their living space. When she is not working with cats, she is writing about cats.
She believes 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.
She is the founder the longest standing, award winning pet sitting business in Dublin – Maow Care and the founder of Ireland’s first cat-centric festival Dublin Cat Fair. She is also a Pet First Response instructor and Missing Animal Response Technician. She has been featured on numerous media both in Ireland and abroad. She has been recently featured on RTE documentary – One Day: Keeping Ireland Company
Alice speaks English, French, Cantonese and Mandarin, she can serve you in all of these languages. She also has Level 1 on Irish Sign Language.
She is married, a mother of one human and two cats.
Fun fact: She has travelled 10627.48 km over the years together with her cat Larmlarm when they moved from Hong Kong to Paris, then to Dublin.
