As a cat behaviourist, Lauren can help you work out why the behaviour is being displayed and develop an individual behaviour modification plan.

Feline Problematic Behaviour Consultation

Are you struggling with your cat’s problematic behaviour? Lauren can help you develop a plan for addressing separation related problems, spraying and marking, aggressive behaviour, tensions with other cats or dogs, anxiety, overgrooming, fears, inappropriate play, furniture destruction and much more! The cost of an initial consultation as detailed below is £250.

Consultations involve:

  • 4. A  written report and behaviour modification plan
  • 5. 3 months email and WhatsApp support

  • How do cat advice sessions differ from problematic behaviour consultations?

    Behaviour is complex and involves many aspects, including: emotions, motivations, physiology, genetics, the cat’s environment, previous experience and more! It is essential that when addressing problematic behaviour, a full understanding is gained about why the behaviour is being displayed so that changes can be made, with appropriate behaviour modification techniques. Advice sessions on the other hand, will revolve around optimising your cat’s environment and general interactions to reduce the likelihood of any behaviour problems developing in the future. If it becomes clear that a behaviour consultation and veterinary referral is necessary during an advice session, then the cost of the advice session will be deducted from the consultation fee.

  • What is vet referral and why is it necessary?

    Any behaviour problem will require veterinary referral prior to a consultation. This is because health conditions both past and present can influence behaviour. Vet referral involves your vet signing a form to indicate their approval of referral and to allow for communication between vet and behaviourist. Should it be required, Lauren can then discuss with your vet if there are any medical related problems or suspicions which may be relevant to the behaviour problem and if medication may be of use in helping with behaviour modification.

  • How quickly will I see changes in my cat?

    This depends on many factors. In some cases you may see quick results, however most of the time commitment and consistency will be required to get the best, long term results. Lauren's role is to help you understand why your cat is acting in a particular way and to equip you with the skills and support necessary to achieve your goals and build on your relationship with your cat. Behaviour problems often develop over time and therefore there is very rarely a quick fix. Wagg & Purr Pet Behaviour is committed to offering you support until you feel happy with what you’ve achieved with your cat.
