For Cat Owners
Living with a cat can be one of the most rewarding relationships in your life. It can also be one of the most challenging when your cat's actions are offensive to you. No one likes it when their cat pees outside the litter box or starts to use the new sofa as a scratching post.
This site is full of educational information and suggestions designed to help you understand why cats do what they do and solutions for modifying behaviors.
A Cat Behavior Specialist helps to diagnose what might be causing your cat to behave the way it does and help modify that behavior with a treatment plan. A treatment plan might involve you modifying the environment, changing nutritional intake, learning new ways to interact with your cat and more.
The ideal way to address your cats problems is with an on-site behavior consultation, but if geographic location or timing prohibit that, consultations can be done virtually.
More information about behavior consults can be found here.
If you'd like to schedule a behavior consultation to discuss what's going on with your feline, use our initial consult form.
"THANK YOU SO MUCH! I am already seeing a difference and I can't express how happy and hopeful I am!"
Shelters can be overwhelming, even for a cat who was confident in their home environment. Their routines have changes, everything smells different, other cats are threatening, and they've been stripped of having choices and control. Often these cats become fractious or depressed, making them overlooked.
In high volume shelters, where space is limited, length of stay is shorter, and no cat behavior staff to work with them, often there is no choice but to humanely euthanize them before they become ill due to the increased stress.
Molly works with shelters to implement cat enrichment, educating staff and volunteers of cats' needs, and training how to help cats gain their confidence back.
