Excellent and Comprehensive Behavior Care for Washington Cat Owners

For over two decades, our veterinarian and certified cat behaviorist and New York Times acclaimed international feline science author Mieshelle Nagelschneider have helped thousands of cat owners in over 30 countries solve cat behavior issues from the simple to the most complex.  Mieshelle studied animal behavior at Oxford University, and The Royal School for Veterinary Studies – The University of Edinburgh.  You can read about her experience at Harvard University here that has enabled her to help cat owners think more scientifically about their cat’s behavior.  Help your cat with a simple behavior issue or one that has turned into something more complex.  Applying the sciences of wild felid genetics, animal psychology, feline learning and memory and biology is important to effectively correct a cat’s behavior long term.  View 350 solved case studies and testimonials and our clinic success rate. 

Effective Cat Behavior Plans are Based on Feline Evolutionary Biology, External and Internal Factors, and Gene – encoded Behavior

To change a cat’s behavior, it’s important to work with an experienced cat behaviorist, but most importantly, one with formal study in animal behavior that can apply the sciences of genetics, animal psychology, biology, and physiology to effectively correct a cat’s behavior.  An effective behavior plan to correct a cat’s behavior long term needs to be grounded in feline evolutionary biology and gene-encoded behavior (i.e fixed action patterns).

The Underserved Cat

Even though cats are now the most popular companion animal, they are still incredibly underserved and especially where behavior help is concerned which puts the cat at a greater risk.  Mieshelle is the founder of the first cat-only behavior practice in the United States and one of three notable cat behaviorists in the United States, and is world-renowned for her global leadership in cat behavior education and crossing the conventional boundaries of the cat behaviorist profession.  She is a long time cat expert for National Geographic cat documentaries and published works specifically on the 37 species of tigers and wildcats including domestic cats and an expert on hybrid cat behavior. You can view her work on:  Howie Mandel’s Animals Doing Things for National Geographic, The Wild Side of Cats on Nat Geo Wild, The Today Show, Hallmark Channel, Animal Planet, the New York Times, MTV, NBC Dateline, New York Post (just to name a few).

The clinic goes beyond the obvious facts about cat behavior and offers proven solutions to change your cat’s behavior long term.  Her cat behavior science book, published in 4 languages (Random House Publishing) is the first scholarly-cited cat behavior book for cat owners.
