Step 1: Raise Your Hand (or Paw)

If you’re ready to schedule your phone or video Skype consultation with our cat behaviorist, Mieshelle Nagelschneider Certified C.A.T. Counselor, click the Book a Consultation button here:  Book a Consult.

Or, by calling the clinic at 1-503-267-8888. We guarantee a reservation within 2 – 4  business days if we choose your appointment time.  If you request a specific appointment time, we can usually schedule you within 7 days.  Appointment times are available 7 days a week  from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Pacific time/12:00 to 9:00 p.m. Eastern.  Payment is due at time of scheduling and this can be done online or by calling the clinic.

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. You will need to complete this form and email 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: Get Your Cat Behavior Solution

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 behavior program for solving your cat’s behavior issue(s) during your consultation. This is our comprehensive C.A.T. Plan™ that will provide you with the most up-to-date techniques and knowledge to change your cat’s behavior. 

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 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!

Follow our instructions. That’s important. We have the success rate we do because cat owners commit to following the easy-to-follow steps we set out for them. Just as important, you are our eyes and ears sending in 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 do not think a consultation with the clinic would suitable for your cat, we will not hold the consultation and send you a refund.
