Cat Behavior Expert Mieshelle

Is Your Cat a Good Candidate for a Behavior Consultation?

Probably, but this is our clinic efficacy guarantee policy:  We know you are loving cat owners wanting the best for your cats and we are here to offer our guidance and expertise.  If after the Cat Behaviorist reviews your completed feline behavior history form it’s determined a consultation would not be appropriate or effective for your cat(s), the clinic will refund your consultation fee, but still hold a short consultation at no charge to let you know what kind of help would be the most beneficial for your cat behavior problem.

Through September 30th Study Participation Discount:  We need a few more cat owners for our 2018 feline social facilitation study.  Receive the $200.00 study discount if you take part in our cat behavior study for urination or defecation consultations (this consult is normally 450.00, but is 250.00 with the discount).  You will be sent a series of cat behavior questions regarding your cat after your consultation to take part in the study.  Read over 200 + client phone testimonials

International Cat Behavior Media Tour – Parent Magazine Live in Toronto, Canada – Preventing Feline Behavior Issues

It’s important to work with an experienced and certified cat behaviorist, but most importantly, one with formal study in animal behavior and a track record of proven results. The benefits of working with a cat behaviorist who really understands the latest in feline behavior can literally last you for years. (Like driving lessons, typing lessons, or a parenting class). A consultation with Mieshelle is nothing less than an investment towards a happier and problem-free cat — and toward your sanity. The advice, knowledge, and tools you’ll get during and after your consultation, as well as the traps (and products) to avoid, will repay you many times over.

Clinic Policies: Cancellation, refund, or reschedule policy is a minimum of 48 hours notice required. No refunds for unused leftover consultation time and all allotted appointment time must be used in either the 4 or 8 week initial program.  For clients past their program time, you can purchase a reduced rate 30 minute phone or Skype follow-up for $50.00 if deemed appropriate by the clinic for your behavior issue.  Certain issues require a new consultation especially if it’s been several months since your last consult or you have a different behavior issue than when you first consulted with the clinic.  You must complete the behavior history questionnaire prior to your appointment time in order to have a one or two-hour consultation unless the behaviorist allows to waive this step. At this time, our vets perform in-person consultations only.

The value you receive goes well beyond the cat issue you have today. Because we truly educate our clients on how cats act and behave — and especially how their behavior is totally different from the dogs that most people unconsciously use as models — our clients are able to more knowledgeably raise and enjoy cats for as long as they have cats.  Mieshelle’s most recent study of animal behavior was at Harvard University and she has written the first scholary-cited cat behavior book for cat owners that has been published in 4 languages.
