About Mollie Hogan
Mollie brings 25 years of animal training and her lifelong love of cats together to provide a unique and positive experience to both felines and their companions.
Mollie began her animal training career as manager of the Sedona Animal Shelter in Arizona where she and her volunteer staff prepared hundreds of cats and kittens for adoption.
She returned to California to attend the Moorpark College Teaching Zoo, graduating with a degree in Exotic Animal Training and Management. Soon after graduation, Mollie joined The Los Angeles Zoo’s Cat Show where she trained and presented a variety of cat species in public programs.
During her time with the Los Angeles Zoo, given her passion for animal training and teaching, Mollie employed her professional abilities part time as an instructor at her alma mater, Moorpark College, teaching “Education and Entertainment in Animal Parks” and “Wildlife Education.”
When a native animal show called “Wild in the City” was terminated by the Los Angeles Zoo in 1985, Mollie acquired the cats and other wildlife involved and formed what is now the nonprofit organization, The Nature of Wildworks (www.natureofwildworks.org), which provides lifelong care for over 45 wild animals, encompassing 17 different species. She and her staff present over 150 public wildlife educational programs annually in a wide variety of venues. Several species of wild and exotic cats participate in these programs where the most often asked question by the viewing public is “How do you train a cat?”
Mollie has published numerous articles on animal behavior and her extensive knowledge of felines, in particular, allows her to assist others with their cat training needs.
