Is Your Cat a Good Candidate for a Behavior Consultation?

Probably, but this is our clinic efficacy guarantee policy: we know you are loving cat owners wanting the best for your cats and we are here to offer our guidance and expertise.  If after the clinic evaluates your completed feline behavior history form it’s determined a consultation would not be appropriate or effective for your cat(s), the clinic will hold a consultation at no charge to discuss the best course of action for your cat(s).

Mieshelle is a New York Times Acclaimed Cat Behavior Science Author Published in 4 Languages (Random House Publishing w/co-writer Cameron Powell and National Geographic).

Gene-encoded Cat Behavior: It Matters For Lasting Success for Cat Behavior Issues

To achieve lasting results, it’s necessary to work with an experienced cat behaviorist, but most importantly, one with formal study in animal psychology and behavior. The ability to apply the sciences of genetics, animal psychology, biology, physiology, and feline learning and memory is needed to effectively correct a cat’s behavior.  The clinic solves cat behavior issues by scientifically observing and analyzing your cat’s behavior.  As pioneers of the “Cat Behaviorist” specialty and the first cat-only behavior practice in the United States we have helped thousands of cat owners in over 30 countries by phone, video, or in-person.

The Science Behind Successfully Solving Cat Behavior Issues

Our cat behavior program provides a comprehensive treatment approach incorporating a behavioral cognitive, ethological, and feline evolutionary point of view. Understanding how behavior is actually measured and how scientific studies are conducted and reported is crucial before taking the steps involved in designing and carrying out a behavior plan to change a cat’s behavior. The benefits of working with a cat behaviorist who really understands the latest in feline behavior can literally last you for years. (Like driving lessons, typing lessons, or a parenting class). A consultation with Mieshelle is nothing less than an investment towards a happier and problem-free cat — and toward your sanity. The advice, knowledge, and tools you’ll get during and after your consultation, as well as the traps (and products) to avoid, will repay you many times over.

In-home local consultations are accepted on a case by case basis by Dr. Jim Shultz DVM or Mieshelle Nagelschneider and rates are determined by your location and nature of behavior issue, but normally begin at $1200.00 (plus flight and hotel accommodations if you are out of state).

The value you receive goes well beyond the cat issue you have today. Because we truly educate our clients on how cats act and behave — and especially how their behavior is totally different from the dogs that most people unconsciously use as models — our clients are able to more knowledgeably raise and enjoy cats for as long as they have cats.
