Is your cat's behavior bringing you down?

Don't give up - we're here to help!

Our Full-Service Consultation is designed to tackle big behavior issues, help improve relationships, and allow your cat’s best self to shine. It’s only through understanding why our feline companions do what they do, and need what they need, that we can fully appreciate them and find ways to adjust unwanted behaviors in a way that meets everyone’s needs. The goal is to create an environment where everyone is happier!

Full-Service Consultations are Perfect for:

House-soiling

eliminating outside of the litter box and/or spraying

Inter-cat relationships

aggression between cats and cat introductions

Socialization or fearful behavior

avoidance of people or fear-related aggression towards people

Inter-pet relationships

issues between cats and other pets in the home

Multiple issues

a combination of issues can arise from one or more causes and may be addressed together

Your Full-Service Consultation Includes:

Detailed Intake Questionnaire

We’ll ask you to give us an in-depth preview of your cat’s background, behavior, lifestyle, and environment so we can get a full picture of the situation before our first meeting.  This saves a ton of time when we're together so that we can work on developing solutions.

Up to Three Meetings

We'll have up to three meetings: an initial meeting (over Zoom or in-home) to identify the priority action items, a second meeting (over Zoom) 2-3 weeks later to make sure the plan is moving smoothly, and a third meeting (over Zoom) 3-4 weeks later (if necessary) to iron out any wrinkles.  Meetings are scheduled based on your needs.

Customized Behavior Action Plan

Shortly after our first meeting you’ll receive a concise customized behavior action plan that guides you through the most important steps towards resolving unwanted behaviors.  You'll also get handouts to provide you with more information and details.

Tons of Resources

You’ll have everything you need to teach and maintain the behaviors you want from your cat, enrich her life, and strengthen your relationship with how-to guides, videos, informational articles, suggested products, and other recommendations.

Email Support

For the duration of your consultation period (which typically lasts between 6 and 8 weeks, depending on the rate of progress), you'll have email access to us when you need it.  Run into any stumbling blocks, challenges, or questions?  Let us know so that we can help you!

We're on Your Team

We are happy to be part of your cat care team, and this means working with your veterinarian upon request.  We aren't medical professionals but we love working with veterinarians to make sure our clients are being cared for on all levels.
