She’s a Quick Study

Mieshelle may know more about cats than any shrink knows about human beings. She viscerally comprehends cat psychology, and is deeply intuitive. I’ve never seen someone so quickly size up an animal and truly understand the nature of its challenges, nor someone who (when she works in person) so speedily earns a cat’s trust.

Mieshelle is the cat behaviorist of first resort for those who already know her work — and last resort for people whose cats don’t like anyone else, or who just aren’t getting better through others’ advice.
