Cat Behavior Problems Solved Daily by the Clinic
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. And like most expert cat behaviorists, we are able to achieve full success with you over the phone. Learn why. Here’s just a partial list of cat problems we help clients overcome every day:
- Destructive marking behaviors such as spraying (urine) and middening (feces)
- Inappropriate elimination, whether cat urination or cat defecation or both, no matter where it’s occurring
- Clawing and other destructive behaviors — stop your cat from scratching the furniture
- Aggressive cat behavior with the owner, other cats, or people within the household, including cat biting behavior
- Yowling, excessive vocalization, and compulsive behaviors
- 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 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
