Hundreds of Success Stories with Our California Cat Owners for Over Two Decades

Cat behavior issues like urination, defecation, aggression and other cat behavior issues are very solvable. Taking into consideration feline evolutionary biology and your cat’s gene encoded behavior (instincts and fixed action patterns) is just one of several components that must be a part of a successful behavior plan that has lasting results.  To achieve this, it’s necessary 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, physiology, learning and memory to effectively correct a cat’s behavior.
