About Cat Behaviorist
A Cat Patient with Veterinarian Dr. Jim Shultz.

One very crucial component in treating some cat behavior issues is ongoing help after the initial consultation.  Because appropriate and sound behavior advice for a specific cat is not one-size-fits-all, continued correspondence with your behaviorist is possible at The Cat Behavior Clinic.

Mieshelle is a popular resource for many cat-only veterinary practices nationwide, many wild cat sanctuaries, and countless animal shelters needing expert advice on feline behavior, which she usually donates her time to. Mieshelle has worked professionally with thousands of domestic house cats, wild, and feral cats. She was one of the referred Feline Behavior Consultants for Animal Aid and The Cat Adoption Team of Oregon, a 350-cat no-kill shelter, many medical vets nationwide, and is a Guardian Angel for cats with emotional and physical needs at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary.
