The Cat Coach®, a cat behaviorist, helps resolve cat behavior problems using a combination of positive and humane methods that include behavior modification, training techniques and education. One of The Cat Coach’s goals is to educate people about cats and cat behavior, keeping cats from being needlessly surrendered to shelters and euthanized because of resolvable behavior challenges.
It is important to have a cat with behavior challenges checked out thoroughly by a veterinarian to determine if the problem is medical or behavioral. Sometimes the symptoms displayed by a cat are caused by a medical problem and not a behavioral one. The Cat Coach® works with veterinarians throughout the country. Sometimes there are situations where the problems are most effectively resolved by combining behavior modification with a short course of medication.
