Our Standard 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!

Your Standard 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 fully assess your situation.
2 Hour In-home or Video Meeting
We’ll ask more questions, identify the cause of the issue, and help you understand your cat’s needs better. We’ll discuss a plan to improve behavior issues, making sure that it’s feasible for you and your situation.
Custom Behavior Plan
You’ll receive a customized behavior plan that guides you through all the steps, tips, and tricks we recommend to resolve unwanted behaviors.
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.
You’ll talk with us again towards the end of your consultation period to make sure things are moving in the right direction and answer any new questions you have. If it’s urgent, you can talk sooner rather than later!
For a full 30 days, we’ll be here to answer questions, help you overcome obstacles, and assist you in working through your behavior plan.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is video as good as an in-person consultation?
As long as you can walk us around your home using a laptop, tablet, or phone, we can see what’s important – your cat’s environment! Even with in-person consultations, we often rarely see the behavior in question. The main drawback is that with a video meeting we don’t get to meet your kitty so we miss out on petting and playing, which is a bummer for us!
Further, whether we meet via video or in-person, you can always send us videos and photos of your cat doing the behavior you’re concerned about, or have us review training/desensitization sessions as well. Video technology has allowed us to help cats all over the world!
How does a video consult work?
Having a video consultation is super easy. We use Zoom for these meetings; upon scheduling, you’ll receive a confirmation email that contains your meeting link. We typically don’t record these sessions (aside from when you show us around your home, with your permission, for our own reference in case we need to give something a second look later), and we will never share any video recorded with anyone else.
Do you have a guarantee policy?
Because there are so many factors that are out of our control when it comes to improving your cat’s behavior, we cannot offer a guarantee. We make recommendations and you implement the plan; we can’t control how much of the plan you execute, or how well you do the things we recommend. We also can’t control your cat’s response or your environment. That being said, if you have questions about how to do something or need help with overcoming an obstacle, that’s what we’re here for – just reach out for help when you need it.
