Cat Trainer

What Sets Us Apart From the Rest:

Mieshelle was the first “Cat Behaviorist” in the United States and coined the term paving the way for the cat behavior training specialty.  She has specialized certification as well as formal university animal behavior study that has enabled her to scientifically observe and analyze cat behavior from a behavioral cognitive, ethological, and feline evolutionary point of view.

Professional Statement from Our Cat Trainer Mieshelle Nagelschneider at The Cat Behavior Clinic:

Effective cat training is straight forward, but cats have a very different evolutionary biology than dogs and external and internal factors affect them differently than other species and this needs to be part of any training to change a cat’s behavior.  Once I teach my clients how a cat’s mind works, they’re able to cure behavior problems in the cat who inspired them to schedule a remote phone or video consultation program with me and The Cat Behavior Clinic.  More importantly, a cat trainer can prevent future problems in that cat, other cats in the household, cats they may own many years later, and even cats not yet living in the home.  Behavior training plans are based on scientific research behavior studies of felids, your cat’s feline evolutionary biology, innate learning styles and memory, and current external and internal factors affecting your cat.  Our outstanding 95% clinic success rate.

“The reason people are so mesmerized by house cats is because they are truly miniature versions of lions, tigers, and leopards. In her book The Cat Whisperer, Mieshelle Nagelschneider explains the behavior of the house cat in an unprecedented and most accessible way, offering unique insight into the often misunderstood companion animal that is as wild as we have become civilized.”—Jordan Carlton Schaul, Ph.D., contributing editor, National Geographic, and curator, Orange County Zoo

Cat Training Saves Cat’s Lives

I educate my clients to help themselves and their cats.  I know that every time I explain cat behavior to a cat owner, I’m adding to the level of cat happiness in the world and saving a cat’s life at the same time from being sent to a shelter, put outside or euthanized.

Change Your Life by Learning to Train Your Cat

If you have cat behavior problems, let me show you how to train cats to do what you’d rather have them do, and to stop doing what you don’t like. I’ve trained veterinarians and shelter workers nationally and internationally traveling the globe from Australia to the Philippines working with Best Friends Animal Society, Animal Welfare League with Whiskas, Arm & Hammer, Comfort Zone, the Paw Project, and NKLA.

I’ve trained all kinds of animals, but effective cat training is easy for me, and I can convey this training to you as I have to thousands of cat lovers everywhere.  Effective strategies go beyond the obvious and are more involved that what you’ll usually find on the internet.  Please know that cat training is not like dog training.  There is no intense hands-on approach with teaching your cat how to “behave”.  Again, it’s more scientific relating to their feline evolutionary biology and how that causes them to relate and respond to the environment around them.  Cats have more of an innate wildness to them which also plays a role with some behavior issues owners may be tackling.
