Systematic Cat Behavior Plans 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.  Cat behaviorists need to have a solid understanding of feline evolutionary biology and gene encoded behavior (instincts and fixed action patterns) as just one of several components that must be a part of a successful behavior plan that has lasting results. 

Washington Cat Behaviorists Are Few and Far Between

Mieshelle, one of three notable cat behaviorists in the United States, is world-renowned for her global leadership in cat behavior education and crossing the conventional boundaries of the cat behavior 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.
