Cat Behavior Problem? These Are The Most Common Issues We Solve
There is simply no cat behavior issue we have not helped our clients to solve many times — or that we cannot help you to solve now. Read over 350 clinic testimonials. And like most expert cat behaviorists, we are able to achieve full success with you over the phone or by video. Learn why. Here’s just a partial list of cat problems we help clients overcome every day:
Spraying with urine is a destructive marking behaviors such as (urine) and middening (feces)
Aggressive cat behavior with the owner, other cats, or people within the household, including cat biting behavior
Clawing and other destructive behaviors — stop your cat from scratching the furniture
Other so-called “bad cat behavior”
Last but not least, along with your vet, we can help your cat get the medical intervention it might need in addition to our behavioral expertise — many behavior problems are caused and then exacerbated by pain or illness. Behavior problems caused by pain or illness often persist even after the medical problem is solved, and we’ll tell you when you need a good vet. Dr. Jim Shultz is our licensed in-person veterinarian on staff to help answer any questions.
Training for You and Your Cat
We also help our clients to train their cats in desirable new behaviors and cat behavior modification:
- Introducing (and re-introducing) new kittens, other cats, other animals, or new people to the household, using The Nagelschneider Method, a highly effective system for reducing hostility available only from the Clinic’s own behaviorists.
- Keeping cats off counters and other areas
- Calming the over-stimulated cat
- Clicker training to promote healthy behaviors and a predictable environment
- Taking care of kittens
Understanding Your Cat’s Behavior
We can even help you to understand behaviors that many clients think is abnormal, strange, or unusual, and help you interpret what those behaviors mean.
- What’s normal male cat behavior — and what’s not.
- Cat in heat behavior and female cat behavior in general
- Cat sexual and mating behavior
- Pregnant cat behavior
- Cat licking behavior
- Cat litter box behavior
- Cat kneading behavior
- Feral cat behavior
- Cat eating behavior
- Cat nocturnal running behavior
- Cat behavior by breed
- Wild cat behavior, for wild cat owners or as a way of understanding domestic cat behavior

Thank you so much. You’re a miracle worker. Lexi is as happy as a kitten and has not had one accident. I did everything you told me to do and the problem was fixed! Our whole family cheered and you can just add that to your website of happy customers. Y our fee should triple for the happiness of understanding how Lexi ‘works’ and what makes her happy. Our family, including Le xi sighed a huge relief this week, thanks to you. Makes me think that there are a lot of kitties on Prozac and taken to the humane society for no reason... and she wasn’t sick, we just didn’t understand her. Thank you for everything.
The reason people are so mesmerized by house cats is because they are truly miniature versions of lions, tigers, and leopards. As The Cat Whisper er, Mieshelle explains in an unprecedented and a most accessible way, the behavior of the house cat, with her unique insight into the often misunderstood companion animal that is as wild as we have become civilized.
We have seen (and smelled) a difference already! We (behavior plan removed) and it's AMAZING! (Behavior plan removed) like nothing I've ever used before! Mario has been pacing a LOT less! and I've seen him do his "twitchy tail" but then checked and there was no spray. He still cries at the windows but the (behavior plan removed) seems to be helping for sure! All in all, we've seen improvement and that's a miracle with all the change that's been going on in our home preparing for our move. We're continuing all the (behavior plan removed).

Ever since the day of our first call, Dax has only used the cat box, so I guess it is 100% better now. We hadn't even changed anything yet. Maybe he just knew... 😉 Since Thursday, March 19, Dax has not urinated anywhere but the litter box! (Behavior plan removed) seems to have made all the difference! We (behavior plan removed) where Dax had repeatedly urinated. A few days ago, we also (behavior plan removed). T. Brandon
