Feline Behavior Philosophy- The Cat Behavior Clinic
Cats are not like dogs. They are also not like humans. Most importantly, you must view the world through a cat’s eyes to solve any behavior issue. All cat behavior consulting has to start with this awareness. That’s because nearly all failed efforts to modify cats’ behavior assume that cat psychology is like dog psychology (or worse, like human psychology). These efforts are doomed to fail because they are based on ignorance of the uniqueness of individual cats and colony behavior dynamics.
Working with a behaviorist that has formal study in animal behavior is vital in solving any cat behavior issue. Without a behavior plan that isn’t carefully created drawing from current research on cat behavior to appropriately address all the critical components and factors of a presenting behavior, is like trying to conduct a symphony without sight or sound. Mieshelle has studied cats for 3 decades and her most recent study of animal behavior was at Harvard University. She works with owners to help them understand how their cat really thinks. The advice we give can therefore last for as long as you own a cat, not just until your current issue is resolved.
