Top 5 Reasons to Book a Consultation

Top 5 Reasons to Book a Consultation

I’ve been doing behavioral consults for cats and their humans for over 30 years - and believe me when I say, I’ve seen it all! But while some cats find “creative” ways to frustrate their guardians, certain issues pop up more than others. Here are the top five reasons why people seek out my expertise - along with some videos and products that may help if you’re facing the same challenges in your home!

  •  Litter Box Issues
  •  Multi-Cat Friction
  • Fearfulness
  • Aggression
  • Hyperactivity

    5. Hyperactivity


    Is your cat keeping you up at night? Do they constantly knock stuff off the shelf, attack your legs when you walk past, or meow excessively? A bored cat is often a destructive cat, so my mission for these cases is to find healthy outlets for all that excess energy. Interactive playtime, puzzle feeders, harness walking, Catification, and clicker training are some of my favorite ways to provide enrichment for hyper cats — and I can help you get started!

    4. Aggression


    No one wants to be afraid of their animal companion, and it's truly heart-wrenching to see the toll it takes on everyone involved. Once that trust is fractured, it sets off a domino effect: the human feels uneasy around the cat, the cat picks up on this tension and reacts defensively, and the human's reaction escalates, further deepening the rift. If you are walking on (vegan) eggshells around your cat, let’s work together to find the underlying cause for their aggressive behavior, identify their triggers, and repair your relationship.

    3. Fearfulness


    If your scaredy cat needs a major Mojo boost, you’ve come to the right guy! Whether your cat is terrified of strangers, acclimating to a new home, or hiding under the bed all day, I can help you see the world from their perspective and give you all the tools you need to bring out the best in your cat. We’ll use a combination of play therapy, jackpot treats, Catification, and counter-conditioning to empower your Wallflower and strengthen your bond.

    Recommended products: Convertible Clamshell, Stress Stopper, Inaba Churu 5-Pack 

    2. Multi-cat Friction


    Living in a multi-cat household can be a source of immense joy, but it can also come with its fair share of challenges. If you're dealing with territorial aggression, hissing matches, or full-blown catfights between your feline family, know that you're not alone. Whether you're navigating the delicate process of introducing cats or addressing longstanding tensions that have recently erupted, I'll help you foster positive interactions and create a harmonious environment in which all your cats can thrive.

    1. Litter Box Issues


    I often say that if cats always used the litter box, I would be out of a job! Few things frustrate cat guardians and strain the relationship they have with their cats as much as litter box problems. But fear not! With a little detective work — and a whole lot of my Jackson Galaxy Stain & Odor Eliminator — we'll restore peace and cleanliness to your home while keeping your cat's bathroom habits in the litter box, where they belong.

    Recommended products: Urine Luck Cat Bundle, Meowt! Laundry Booster, Sustainably Yours Natural Cat Litter

    It's crucial to recognize that the behaviors we often label as inappropriate or destructive are entirely intrinsic to a cat's nature. If your cat’s behavior is causing stress and resentment, I can offer valuable insight to help you navigate these challenges. Book a consultation with me today and together we'll decode what your cat is trying to tell you, find practical solutions, and restore harmony to your home!
