Meet the cat whisperer...

Have your say

Do you have a frustrated feline or a mischievous moggy?

If so, the self-proclaimed ‘Cat Man’ of St Annes may be able to help you!

Louis Denyer claims to be able to speak fluent cat after years of studying the animals in his spare time.

He is now offering his services to help the owners of problem cats after setting up his own feline behaviourist business, which he claims is the first of its kind on the Fylde coast.

Louis, 29, said: “I’m in it to save cats’ lives, that’s the whole point of why I’m doing it.

“I just feel there’s too many cases of mistreated cats, and cats that are misbehaving and being punished.

“Cat are very territorial

animals who need to know they own the whole space where they live. I want to not only help cats but to educate people about them, too.

“People don’t realise that playing with your cats for 20 minutes and tiring them out will solve a lot of problems.

“It’s as important as taking your dog out for a walk.”

Louis, who helps out at Cat Rescue Fylde, off North Houses Lane, St Annes, got the idea to help owners with their problem pets after friends told him he had a special bond with the animals.

He said: “I just realised that cats like me, I speak fluent cat.

“I don’t go ‘meow, meow’ but I read their body language.

“There’s a lot of issues cats have and they sort of get brushed under the carpet,

unlike dogs, who have lots of people to help them.”

A spokesman for RSPCA Blackpool said: “We don’t do anything behaviour wise but I’m sure what he’s doing would be beneficial.”

Anyone in Blackpool or St Annes who wants Louis to carry out a free consultation on their cat’s behavioural problems can call him on 07591 097517.
