Inside the Mind of a Cat: a Netflix Documentary Featuring the Cornell Feline Health Center.

Recently, our own Dr. Bruce Kornreich, Director of the Cornell Feline Health Center, and other feline experts took part in the production of a new documentary titled “Inside the Mind of a Cat”. This unique film examines the physiology, behavior, and history of our furry friends and their special bond with people, and is currently available for viewing on Netflix.

Red Rock Films, producer of the Emmy-winning 2021 National Geographic series “Secrets of the Whales,” invited Kornreich to participate in the project, one he says supports the center’s outreach mission to improve feline well-being through education.
