What Clients Say . . .
IN-HOME BEHAVIOR CONSULTATION: I've used Jennifer for my own cat's behavioral issues, and found her professional, kind and well informed. I have no hesitation in referring my clients to her for their cats' behavioral needs too! - Leanna Shuttleworth, Veterinarian
IN-HOME BEHAVIOR CONSULTATION: Jennifer was patient and professional in her assessment of our cat's issues (peeing outside the box) and her strategies were very helpful. She was very communicative and showed a genuine love of animals. - Divya
KITTEN CARE CONSULTATION: Jennifer’s process is careful and thorough, taking into account the individual cat’s history and owners’ experience. The tailored report and suggestions on appropriate toys and environmental changes will especially help first-time owners seeking to make their kitten welcome, safe and healthy. She remains committed to the pet and offers feedback and follow ups diligently. - Surya
BEHAVIOR CONSULTATION: Being a cat rescuer for over 10 years I have experience dealing with all kinds of cats from very docile and friendly to feral, who have no interest in interaction with humans. Well, last August , I rescued Spot – an extremely handsome and at the same time super aggressive cat. He used to be a house cat, but was apparently terribly mishandled and finally dumped on the street. I did not know where to start. Luckily one of my colleagues from Brooklyn Animal Action put me in touch with Jennifer. It was a turning point in Spot’s rescue. Jennifer provided invaluable input and guided us during weeks of our work with the cat. At the end Spot’s true nature finally came to light and he got adopted to a nice loving forever home, thanks to our efforts and Jennifer’s recommendations and guidance. - Gregory
IN-HOME BEHAVIOR CONSULTATION: Jennifer was amazing. She was thoughtful and patient. She provided a comprehensive plan with endless information and suggestions. We were dealing with a cat who sprays everywhere and it is beyond frustrating. She gave us the tools and support to correct the behavior. While it has not been an easy journey, we never would have made it without her guidance. Thank you Jennifer! - Eden
IN-HOME BEHAVIOR CONSULTATION: Jennifer was recommended to us by our vet, and we are so grateful that she was! Our older female cat was not getting along with our younger male. As long-time cat owners, we knew it was an issue of confidence and knew some techniques to help, but we were not making any headway. During the home visit, Jennifer was professional, kind, and listened really well to all our needs. We felt very confident in both her ability to help and her care for our cats' well-being. Jennifer distilled all the information out there and gave us invaluable, tailored advice for both our cats in a comprehensive behavior modification plan. Since we’ve implemented her recommendations, we have seen incredible improvement. Our female has completely stopped hiding under the bed, doesn’t mind sleeping near our male, and will now even instigate friendly, calm play with him. We would highly recommend her, even for experienced cat owners. - Erin & Phillip
IN-HOME BEHAVIOR CONSULTATION: Jennifer was thorough, patient and professional. I brought in a 3rd cat to our home which caused much stress to my older cat (peeing on furniture, severe aggression) and her strategies were very helpful. She was very communicative and kept up on how everything was going after our initial visit. Thanks you so much! - Leah
BEHAVIOR CONSULTATION RATING: EXCELLENT
Jennifer is caring, present, a pleasure to work with, but most importantly, she really knows her stuff! Our cat was having issues around not using the litter box, and Jennifer made several suggestions that were non-intuitive, and not something we could have gotten from an internet search. To our delight, the suggestions worked and harmony was restored to our household. Plus, she had some other helpful tips for our 2 cats beyond the original issue that we hired her to examine. I highly recommend Jennifer. - Paula
BEHAVIOR CONSULTATION RATING: EXCELLENT
LIKED BEST: Jennifer's attention to detail suggesting different toys, shelving configurations, and strategies.
DETAILS: - My husband and I adopted two kittens (brother and sister) from a litter of 6 by their mother, a stray. We got them as companions for Kiki, our 5-year-old cat. Kiki did not accept Olaf and Hilda at first, despite our careful introduction, and there was hostility especially between Kiki and Hilda (both females). Jennifer told us the missing key, which was TIME. Cats have their own timeline, and after 7 months (which seemed like a long time for us), things finally turned a corner. We extended the duration of the "visits" with the cats all in the same room together, and slowly they started to relax around each other. Each one now has his/her own chosen "spot" in the apartment where they go when they want to be apart, and there is finally harmony in our household! Thanks Jennifer! - Carol
IN-HOME BEHAVIOR CONSULTATION RATING: EXCELLENT
Jennifer took so much time and care treating my 3 fur babies. She helped me see how they were interacting, what behaviors were stress related and helped improved the dynamics in our house 100%. All of our cats came from very different and very terrible situations before we rescued them. Two who were fearful but expressed their fear very differently and one (the little lady who is only 5.5lbs) who can be a bully! I am so thankful that we found her! - Alyssa
