You don’t have to give up your cat or resort to putting her on drugs! As a professionally-trained feline behaviorist, I help owners worldwide via in-home consultation or by phone, Skype and email. I have over 30 years’ of experience (academic, clinical and shelter), and can work with you and your cat to overcome these and other problems.
Have you adopted shelter cats who are having trouble adjusting? Is your cat ageing and experiencing difficulties, or having a problem adjusting to a new pet in the family? Is she showing aggression? There are lots of kinds and reasons: play-, fear-, petting-induced, territorial, maternal, intermale, redirected, or pain-induced. Is he frightened of people, other cats, noise, kids, places? Or being destructive? Do you have a new baby at home? I can help. It may not be a matter of medicating your cat if the problem is behavioral. There’s little feline behavior on the DVM curriculum of a veterinarian’s university program; often, a veterinarian’s answer to behavior problems is suggesting a drug. This is why my role as a behaviorist is important in helping you achieve positive results.
I love what I do! I’ve been featured on TV, radio and press (see ‘About Me‘). If what you have already tried has not worked, there is a better solution.
In addition to personal home services, I also offer classes and presentations for clinics, colleges, and organizations, and assist with shelter environment enrichment and behavior assessment of shelter cats.
