No refunds for unused leftover consultation time and all allotted appointment time must be used in either the 4 or 8 week initial program.  For clients past their program time, you can purchase a reduced rate 30.00 minute phone or Skype follow-up for $50.00).  You must complete the behavior history questionnaire prior to your appointment time in order to have a one or two-hour consultation.

Not ready? We understand. Unfortunately, Mieshelle is not able to answer any questions about cat behavior without a consultation. And we’re very sorry about that. Sadly, there is no such thing as a “quick question.” Cat behavior is nearly as complicated as human behavior, with as many interdependent variables, and it’s even more mysterious, to a human. Our phone behavioral consulting is pretty simple: Cat owners pay a set price for their consultations, we schedule and hold the consultation(s), you follow the behavior plan for approx. 4 – 8 weeks, and then we declare victory — whether it’s total or partial depends almost entirely on how scrupulously the humans follow our advice (Most effective change is not required of the cat so much as the human). If additional changes to the behavior plan need to be made along the way to adjust to your cat’s response, you can use your remaining appointment time within your 4 or 8 week allotted time.

Zoologist Testimonial: “The reason people are so mesmerized by house cats is because they are truly miniature versions of lions, tigers, and leopards. 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.” Jordan Carlton Schaul, PhD — Contributing Editor, National Geographic Society and Curator, Orange County Zoo

Veterinarian testimonial:“Over the course of many years, Mieshelle has developed and refined her unique ability to think like a cat. On numerous occasions I have witnessed the life-changing benefits Mieshelle’s techniques can bring to cats and their sometimes very frustrated owners.” Dr. James R. Shultz DVM
