Frequently Asked Questions

Yes! I conduct most of my consultations virtually, 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. You may also purchase single consultations after you have already purchased an evaluation or other behavior package from me. If you are concerned, you may schedule an introductory consult with me to make sure that we click!

Many of the services I offer are specific to the most common behavior concerns. If you’re unsure I recommend booking an introductory call with me, or using the chat widget in the right-hand corner to send me a message.

Yes! For this particular situation, I recommend choosing the Basic Cat Behavior Package, so I can set you up with a custom behavior plan. You may also purchase follow up consultations with me if you need additional support and guidance.

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.

A free introductory call with me will last a max of 25 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). There are many nuances when it comes to cats and their individual behavior, and I never recommend throwing things at the wall and seeing what sticks. There are no magic erasers when it comes to living beings, so it’s very important to be strategic and have a good understanding of how learning and behavior works when creating a behavior and training plan.

Growing In Confidence Daily...

“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.”

xxx Toffee’s Mom, Sandy

“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.”

-Margo M. a.k.a. Bogdan’s Mom

Why Should You Sign Up For A Cat Behavior Consultation?

Eliminate The Stress & Fear

I know firsthand what it's like to stress out day after day, dealing with behavior problems, with no end or solution in sight. Living in fear of the worst possible outcome.

I promise you, it doesn't have to be this way!

Save Time & Money

You could spend a massive amount of time scouring the depths of the internet for free solutions that most likely won't work. (I know, because I have done it...) Or spend thousands of dollars on new furniture, carpet, etc, just for your cat to ruin it.

Or you can invest wisely in your future and happiness, by having a custom solution created for you, and receive support every step of the way. The choice is yours!

Heal Your Relationships

I understand that dealing with behavior problems can not only destroy your relationship with your cat. It can put a copious amount of strain on your relationships with your human loved ones as well.

Solving cat behavior issues can lift the weight off your shoulders, so you can focus on what truly matters to you.

Professional & Compassionate

As a Certified Cat Behavior Counselor, my mission is to keep cats with their families, improve the lives of both cats and their guardians, and heal the relationship between them.

I help cat guardians get to the root of their cats' behavioral problems. I then provide them with the tools and support they need in order to create and sustain a lifestyle that's conducive to healthy and positive behavior.

No two cases are the same, every cat is unique, and I will always respect this fact, and treat each case accordingly. You are not just a name on a clipboard to me, I genuinely care about your wellbeing, and that of your cat. I am dedicated to providing you with excellent service, the most positive experience possible, and the support you need to get through this frustrating and difficult time.

Hey There!

Hi there loving cat parent, I’m Lauren! I ‘m a Certified Cat Behavior Counselor, who has 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 have actually experienced almost every behavior issue in the book 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.
