Cat Behaviorist Portland Oregon

What is The Cat Behavior Clinic of Portland?

The Cat Behavior Clinic is the first Cats Exclusively behavior clinic in Portland, Oregon (and Washington).  Our veterinarian and award-winning certified cat behaviorist and New York Times acclaimed feline behavior science author are trained to assess and address feline behavior concerns.  Since 1999, the clinic has conducted several thousand phone, remote video, or in-person consultations for cat owners who feel they have tried everything to solve their cat’s behavior issues.  Learn more about Mieshelle Nagelschneider and Dr. Jim Shultz here. View 350 solved case studies and cat behavior testimonials.

Important Update:  Mieshelle will be out of the office filming a production for National Geographic through March 17th! We are currently scheduling the doctor and behaviorist March 18th through March 31st.  If you have a multi-cat household and experiencing a urination or defecation issue, you can participate in our feline study and receive the reduced consult fee through March 31st.  Participants also have a chance of becoming part of the National Geographic future production.

Applying the sciences of gene-encoded behavior, animal psychology, feline learning and memory and biology is important to effectively correct a cat’s behavior long term.

Mieshelle Nagelschneider studied animal behavior (and wild felids) at Oxford University and the University of Edinburgh (Royal School of Veterinary Studies) and is the author of New York Times acclaimed feline behavior science book published in 4 languages by Random House Publishing.  Founder and director of the clinic in 1999, her in-depth scientific analysis of the behavior and evolutionary biology of the cat has enabled her to help thousands of cat owners over two decades and in 30 different countries, solve their cat’s behavior issues. Recipient of the Golden Purr Award for her contribution to cat behavior, you can learn more about her other animal studies including her behavior study experience at Harvard University. Our Veterinarian Dr. Jim Shultz performs local in-home consultations.

Cat Behaviorist Portland Testimonial:  “I was extremely pleased with my experience with The Cat Behavior Clinic. I have been dealing with litter box issues for a very long time and my experience was a world away from working with an animal behaviorist vs. a cat behaviorist.  The cat problems I’d been dealing with were extreme and long term and after the consultation and following the instructions, my cats began using the litter box 100% of the time (before my consult it was 75% of the time) within 4 days.   I would strongly recommend working with someone who specializes in cats because if they don’t, they really have no idea what to do with cat behavior and I learned this the hard way after spending $1500.00 just to get in the door at another behavior clinic that got me not one ounce of success.  I will be letting my referral vet know what a great experience it was working with you guys.  All the Best,  J. M. and 6 Perfect and Happy Felines. Finally!”  Portland, Oregon
