Stop Stressing Out on the Daily About Your Cat's Behavior

Getting to the root cause, to create lasting behavior changes.

You love your cat so freaking much...

Your cat is a part of your family, and even though people close to you have told you to “just get rid of them” (whatever that means!) you absolutely will not. 

But Their Behavior
Has GOT To Change.

Rather than going away on their own like you’d hoped, they’ve actually gotten worse. Or better yet, more confusing and stressful behaviors have started alongside the first.

Or maybe the behaviors just started not too long ago, but you’re so stressed and worried that you want a solution… Well, yesterday!

You're SO sick of stressing out and worrying!

Their behavior is stressing you out on a daily basis (or pretty darn close to it!)

You don’t know what the heck to do that will actually work. It’s starting to feel like all you can think about is how to fix this problem..

On top of being stressed, maybe you’re worried that the behavior problem can’t be solved, or even that there’s something wrong with your cat.

& You Know it's time to get help.

I want you to take a deep breath… and know right now that your cat is not broken, and their behavior can be changed. 

It’s time to stop trying to do this alone, and work with a cat expert who can take the stress off of you.

Understand the root cause of what’s going on with your cat, and get clear, step-by-step directions on how to change your cat’s behavior. 

So you can have the stress-free relationship you want with them!

Meet Lauren, Your Cat Behaviorist

Hi there loving cat parent, I’m Lauren! I ‘m Certified in Cat Behavior and Retention, and I have been working with cats for about 9 years. I know, this isn’t exactly a career many people have heard of. Truth be told, it’s more of a calling, than a career. A calling that is born from such a deep curiosity and love for cats, and everything about them.

I, myself, have four incredible and unbelievably loved cats. To me, no cat is “just a cat.” And when you choose to share your life with them, they’re a member of the family.

But, let’s be honest, living with cats (like anything else!) comes with it’s challenges. You see, I didn’t just learn what I know about cats from a book, or getting certified. Over the years, I’ve actually experienced and resolved MANY behavior issues with my own cats.

Behavior problems in cats may seem small, but I know how they can consume your life, and even your relationships.

My mission is to help dedicated cat parents, like you, realize that you don’t have to choose between your cat, and the life you want.

A Better Life for Both You & Your Cat

“I first met Lauren on a cat behavioral page when I adopted my boy. He has had the worst start in life and was terrified of life itself. [He came from a hoarder’s house in Dubai, where he was confined to a cage with two other cats.]

Lauren kindly said she was happy to give me a few helpful tips so we began our journey together. This hasn’t been the easiest for either of us, as we’re on different continents but we have made it work. Unfortunately, toffee is also very ill [and almost completely blind] but with our dedication, patience and mutual understanding, toffee has now gone from being a terrified poorly little boy, to a stronger happier cat that is growing in confidence daily.

When he arrived here, he spent his life in a cardboard box, not moving. Now he loves his bed and cat tree, no box in sight, and he talks to us. He is purring at our tickle times, and even trusts me to rub his belly.

All this has happened in just 11 weeks! He still has a long way to go, but thanks to Lauren’s advice, and our persistence, hopefully he has a long, happy, caring life ahead and NEVER has a negative experience again.

Thank you hunny for your help although I think you’re secretly in love with him too.”

What Lauren's Clients Have to Say

"Lauren has been extraordinarily helpful with her tips and Behavior Plan for my cat, Bogdan. I adopted him as a 2 year old and he had a few behavioral problems. Lauren listened intently as I described my concerns and formatted a lovely plan for me and my cat. The multiple page document I was sent laid out each concern I had with an abundance of solutions. She explained signs of over-stimulation in cats, gave tips on play structure and how to keep him off my counters. I had 6 different concerns and she helped with each and every one. I also appreciated the inclusion of links to purchase different items to enrich my cats environment. I trust Lauren's opinion and expertise and would recommend her to anyone with a cat they love."

We knew we needed help to control some behaviors of our two cats - one scratched everything and the other hid from absolutely everyone. We were also pretty skeptical about a Cat that a thing? We met Lauren by Zoom for our initial consultation and she was great. Luckily we are in Orlando and she was able to assess them in person. Totally worth it. Her consultative and caring manner kept the pets in focus and she gave us a detailed plan to follow. I'm proud to share that the behaviors have been fixed which will ensure many happy years with the cats and two sane owners!

I have three girl cats who used to fight a lot and had a bunch of other behaviors I wanted to change. When Lauren came along, I just knew she would be the perfect person to work with to restore peace amongst the cats. In the three months I worked with Lauren, behavioral and lifestyle modifications increased their energy and now there are way fewer fights! They used to fight multiple times a day, and now it’s about three times a week. A great improvement! Lauren is very knowledgeable and is an authority on cat behaviorism. I highly recommend working with her!

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes! I conduct most of my consultations over Zoom, especially because of COVID-19. We can also do it over the phone, if you are more comfortable with that. If you have concerns, schedule an introductory call with me.

Cats are independent beings, and while we can have a strong influence on their behavior, we cannot control it. Many feline behavior problems require a lot of time and patience to correct – some are simpler and quicker than others. There are many influencing factors, and many times the issues are not standalone.

Behavior packages can be extended if you need more time, and in some cases, this may be strongly recommended. If you are concerned, you may schedule an introductory consult with me to make sure that we click!

There are three ways to determine this.

  1. Take the quiz (here) to guide you in the right direction. Note: This is not a perfect system. I have created it to the best of my ability, and it works well, but there is still some room for error. This is not a huge concern, and can be rectified once I speak with you, and go over your behavior questionnaire.
  2. See if you can identify with any of the behavior problems listed under the consultation information.
  3. Schedule an introductory consultation with me, and I will ask you questions about your situation, in order to determine which option is the best fit for you.

Yes! For this particular situation, I recommend choosing the Comprehensive Behavior Package, so I can set you up with a custom behavior plan. Otherwise, you may schedule a Basic Consultation with me, and purchase extra sessions afterwards, if needed.

No. I am not a pet medium, animal communicator, or a psychic of any kind. My skills are based in behavior science, observation, and problem solving. For the most part, I work with you directly to make adjustments to your cat’s routines, interactions, environment, etc., in order to influence their behavior.

I will want to meet your cat, but after observing your cat’s behaviors, I will be working directly with you.

A free introductory call with me will last a max of 15 minutes. It’s purpose is for me to get a quick background on your cat’s situation, to answer any questions you may have regarding the packages or the consultation itself, and to help you decide whether or not my services are right for you. No behavior questions will be answered during this call, and it does not take the place of a consultation.

Let me first tell you what I do not recommend. I do not recommend ANY type of fear-based training/behavior modification techniques (i.e. caging, flooding, squirt bottles, etc.) . I will never recommend any alpha training techniques (which is basically trying to put your cat in it’s place by being the top cat yourself).

What I do recommend is positive reinforcement techniques (such as clicker training), trust building exercises and techniques, desensitization (strategically exposing the cat to something to diminish the associated fear), and counterconditioning (turning a negative experience into a positive one). I will also most likely recommend changes to make the environment more cat-friendly.

I cannot guarantee that your cat’s behavioral issues can be fixed within any sort of time frame. Behavior modification takes time and patience, and every single situation is unique. However, I should be able to identify the possible causes that are influencing your cat’s problem behavior from our consultation. 

During a consultation, I will be gathering as much information as possible, based off of your questionnaire, plus observation of your cat and the home environment. This will allow me to develop your behavior plan. The behavior plan will detail my assessment of what is causing the behavior problem, and my recommendations that you will need to implement in order to see a positive change in your cat’s behavior. 

You must be willing to dedicate the time that’s necessary in order to see the results you are hoping for. There is no magic wand I can wave to change your cat’s behavior overnight or during a consultation.

I will need you to:

  • Fill out the questionnaire at least two days prior to our consultation.

I will request videos that are relevant to the behavior(s) of concern. These could include, but are not limited to:

  • Cat doing the behavior
  • Specifics of their environment
  • Playtime
  • Routines
  • etc.

Having as much information and video footage ready for me before the consultation is highly recommended, and makes things easier.
