Step 2: Complete the Feline Behavior Questionnaire
You will have access to the feline behavior questionnaire once you’ve been scheduled and that’s where the fun starts — you get to talk about your kitties, non-stop, to someone extremely interested in hearing: Mieshelle Nagelschneider. She has evaluated thousands of feline questionnaires for over two decades.
You will need to complete the Feline History Questionnaire online and submit it to us at least 24 hours prior to your scheduled appointment time. Videos and still photography can be a vital component in evaluating your cat’s behavior issue(s). Once you schedule your consultation, you will receive information in your behavior packet email about what kind of video or photos we may need.
Step 3: Cat Behavior Solution Program
You will be contacted by the clinic for your behavior consultation and Mieshelle will ask you even more questions and then give you a specific, customized feline cognition behavior program for solving your cat’s behavior issue(s) during your consultation. Plans are based on the uniqueness of your cat, but also the science of feline learning and memory and their evolutionary social and biological instincts. This is a crucial aspect in changing the behavior of your cat.
If your cat is not having a behavior issue at the time of the consultation and you are just seeking advice to prevent behavior issues from occurring in the future or have other behavior related questions, Mieshelle will answer those questions during your consultation. See our 350 testimonial Rave Reviews about thousands of cats we’ve helped over the years. You will also receive a diet analysis and recommendations for your cat(s).
Step 4: Experience the Joy of Success: Happier You — Happier Cats.
We have the success rate we do because cat owners commit to following the easy-to-follow behavior plan steps we set out for them. Just as important, you are our eyes and ears sending in weekly email update reports, as you tell us how your cat is responding.
Our efficacy guarantee to you: If after reviewing your completed behavior history questionnaire we determine a consultation program with the clinic would not be helpful or suitable for your cat, we will not hold the consultation and return the consultation fee. In some cases, we may offer a free one-hour consultation.
