You’re frustrated. No, at your proverbial wit’s end. Or your cat’s. You’re not friends any more. ‘Why is he doing that?’ has turned into ‘I want it sorted, or…or…’ It’s no wonder that most cats surrendered to shelters (or worse) were given up because of behavioral problems, not medical ones.
Let’s get you all back together. It’s a matter of determining what’s behind the problem–there’s always a reason for it– in addition to dealing with the symptoms. Then we can sort the issue out, positively and constructively.
What can you expect, whether we meet in person, by phone/Skype or email? Through an initial phone chat, I can thoroughly familiarize myself with the problem. The act of discussing, as well, also gives valuable information that the client perhaps hadn’t considered relevant, such as details about the cat’s eating, soiling, playing, etc. The more I learn about your cat and your family with regard to the specific issues, the better guidance I can give. After determining the problem and why it’s happening, I create an in-depth treatment program to solve the behavior issues. It’s a three-pronged approach: the cat’s environment, treating her physically, and mapping out what you can actively do. This includes telephone follow-ups, to both answer any further questions or thoughts you may have, and to ensure that we’re seeing real progress. This is mutual commitment.
