Behavioural Therapy

What is it? 

A lot of people think cats just “have their own ways”, but it is not true! Most feline behavioural problems are caused by misunderstandings between human and cats. You and your cat(s) can both live better lives if the behavioural problems are modified.

Are you a cat whisperer?

No, I can't talk to cats if that's what you have in mind. However, I can read cat's body language. More importantly, I am doing the detective work to help you to see your living environment from your cat's point of view. By working together, we can figure out what cause your cat's behavioural problems. 

What problem can you solve? 

  • Destructive marking behaviours such as spraying (urine) and middening (feces)
  • Inappropriate elimination (urinating , defecating) outside of the litter box
  • Clawing and other destructive behaviours (e.g. scratching the furniture)
  • Aggressive behaviour with the owner, other cats, or people within the household (e.g. clawing, biting, chasing, bullying, etc)
  • Yowling, inappropriate vocalization, and compulsive behaviours
  • Other so-called “bad behaviour”
  • Other trainings: Introducing (and re-introducing) new kittens, other cats, other animals, or new people to the household; cat care advices, taking care of kittens, etc.

Trust me, you will need to talk to Alice for a while after the consultation, sometimes it takes weeks to see any changes.

Skype consultation

40 Euro: 1 hour

Thanks to technology, we can help more cat people all over the world! Let's be honest, Skype consultation won't be as good as a house call, but if you are overseas or you just need some care advices. Skype will be a good option.
