Cat Aggressive Behavior
This can feel tricky. We get it. You brought your feline friend into your life expecting a mutually loving relationship. You want to spoil him, pet him, cuddle with him on a rainy night, and shower him with praise and love. Instead, you ended up with a cat that hisses when you walk by, swats at your hand when you’re trying to feed him, or bites your best friend every time they come over. Yikes!
Yes we can help. We’ll work with you to figure out why your cat is lashing out. Then, using positive reinforcement training techniques, we will work to bring you two closer than you’ve ever been before. You don’t have to live with a bad housemate who has the potential to be dangerous. There is hope. We can work with you to guide your cat back to being the companion you were hoping for.
“Beth worked with our three cats after we combined households and pets. I have had cats my entire life, but Beth had insights into each cat’s behaviors that I never would have considered. She is kind and clearly knows cat behavior. While our group is still a work in progress, Beth’s knowledge about cat behavior has really helped transition our three adult cats into getting along with each other.” ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Kitty Litter Box Problems
No one expects their cat, who has used the box faithfully since day one, to all of a sudden start pooping on the bed. Or urinating on the carpet. Or taking every opportunity they get to soil your fresh, clean laundry. That’s a lot to deal with. Litter Box issues are frustrating to experience, and seem to come out of nowhere. Don’t worry, we have your back. We are experts in this area. No matter what your litter box woes are, we’ll rise to the challenge and help you figure out how to get the mess back where it belongs.
Hiding Cats and Timid Cats
You’re proud of your cat. Your cat is perfect in every way and you just want to show them off when you have friends or family over! But inevitably, the cat just won’t cooperate and hides from anyone not in the immediate family, maybe even hissing or acting aggressively! That makes it harder to hire a pet sitter or go to the vet’s office, or even have the kid’s friends over for sleepovers. We’re here for you. Let us help you build up your cat’s confidence and help bring them out into the open in all sorts of situations.
