Cat problematic behaviour
Expertise to help you get to the bottom of the behaviour and support in finding solutions which are right for you and your cat.
Would you like support with your cat’s behaviour? My support programmes are designed to help you understand what is driving your cat’s behaviour, find solutions and then support and motivate you to implement them.
Habits are not always easy to change in ourselves and our pet’s behaviour is no different. Behaviour can be complex and impacted by a number of variables, which means it can take time to change. That’s why I focus on exploring all areas of your pet’s environment, routines, interactions and health, to ensure the best chance of success with changing behaviour, or finding solutions which work for you. Support programmes always focus on a way forwards which works for you, your pet and your lifestyle.
Initial pet behaviour support programme: £250
Initial support programme involves:
1. Your vet signs a referral form to allow for veterinary liaison (essential as behaviour problems can be influenced by health, pain and discomfort). Download the referral form to ask your vet to complete here:
2. You complete a questionnaire.
3. An approximately 2 hour in person consultation, usually at your home.
4. You receive an achievable written plan, with support and information to help you follow it.
5. 3 months email, phone call and WhatsApp support to help you follow the plan, make decisions and get back on track with your cat.
Premium pet behaviour support programme (all that is included in an initial programme and 2 x 1 hour in person follow up sessions, as well as 6 months email and phone support): £350
You will also receive priority to book further in person sessions with any programme, if beneficial.

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 behaviour support and veterinary referral is necessary during an advice session, then the cost of the advice session will be deducted from a behaviour support programme.
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, I 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 the behaviour.
Habits and behaviours take commitment to change in ourselves and our pets are no different. Behaviour is individual and complex, so one pet will be different to another. A pet behaviour support programme will help you understand what is driving the behaviour and provide you with a plan, solutions and support.
