Do you need a behavior consultation?
If you're experiencing behavior issues that are stressful, impacting your life and your relationship with your family or your cat, that you have not been able to resolve on your own, you may need professional behavior advice. Dealing with behavior problems such as litter box issues and/or aggression are stressful, frustrating, and challenging experiences. A behavior consultation will help you figure out the source of these issues and move forward with a workable solution.
How does the consultation work?
An in-home or virtual behavior consultation involves completing a detailed medical and behavior history of your cat, a scheduled visit to your home or online meeting to discuss all the issues in detail, obtaining immediate advice at the consultation followed by a written plan to change your cat's behavior. You will learn more about your cat's environmental and emotional needs and make changes to meet those needs in an appropriate way. Assessing the cat's home environment is key to the behavior plan as cats have specific environmental needs.
I also offer an introductory phone call consult for questions about cat care and behavior. Click on Services to learn more about the consultation options.
Can cats really change their behavior?
Cats are absolutely trainable. Of course, there are factors that affect your cat's ability to learn such as temperament and motivation. Many things can contribute to behavioral issues, and making changes to the environment and your routine may be what your cat needs to adjust his/her behavior.
