Whether you have had cats your whole life or whether you are a first time cat guardian, it can be difficult to know what is going on in your cat’s mind. Cats are both predators and prey animals, which means that while they are fierce hunters, they are also sensitive beings who instinctively hide pain or weakness.

 

Our feline friends can become stressed out with even the slightest change in their environment, diet, or routine, and we may not realize it until a bigger problem has occurred. Cats are territorial by nature and can be resistant to the addition of new animals in the home. Whether you are just getting to know your cat, or your cat has been your best friend for years, I can help you to restore harmony in your home and improve your cat’s well-being by helping you to see things from your cat’s point of view.

Please note that my pricing and services may be changing, as I am in the process of restructuring my business.

Brief Phone Evaluation - FREE

I typically require a 10-15 minute phone call for all new clients, prior to scheduling any services. This helps me to better understand the issues you are concerned about so that I can assess whether I feel I will be able to help you. The call is also designed so that you can get a better idea of how I work and what I am like as a person. I don't take on all cases that come my way, and an integral part of my practice is the energy between the client and myself. This is so important because I want to be your advocate and support you. All of my clients must be open to a holistic way of being. If I don't feel that I am the right consultant for you, I will always provide you with at least one or two referrals that you may pursue as other options.

Feline Fundamentals Session - $150 

This is the starting point for ALL new clients with behavioral concerns. We will cover the fundamental needs of all cats and set you up with an initial plan to transform your cat's environment and daily routine. Our goal will be to address stress and boredom, and create a customized enrichment plan. This session will take place virtually via Zoom, a free meeting platform. This session usually takes about about 90 minutes to discuss your cat's history and create an initial management plan.

Each session includes:

  • 90 minute virtual Zoom call

  • Stress management & enrichment plan 

  • 2 weeks of email support

  • 30 min. follow up phone call, scheduled 2 weeks post-consultation

Behavior Modification Sessions - $100-150

Sometimes a Feline Fundamentals Session is enough to resolve mild behavioral concerns with your cat(s). For most situations, though, a behavioral modification plan must be implemented. With dogs, you wouldn't hire a dog trainer and expect to train the new behavior or resolve an issue in just one session. The same goes for cat behavior and training - there is a certain amount of patience and understanding required for achieving household harmony when you live with a cat. Each session will go for about 60 minutes either virtually or in-person. We will discuss which option is most appropriate for you and your cat(s). Discounts are available when you purchase multiple sessions in advance (see below for options). This pricing is for a limited time only!

Each session includes:

  • 60 minute session via Zoom ($100) or in-person ($150)

  • Post-session summary and behavioral modification plan

  • 2 weeks of email support

Clicker Training for Fun & Enrichment - $65 

While some clicker training may be implemented within a behavioral consultation for behavior modification purposes, I also offer individual sessions for enrichment purposes. Clicker training is a fantastic way to bond with your cat and enrich their life. It gives you  a mutual language to speak with your cat, and it bridges communication gaps. From high fives to coming when called, I can help you have fun with your cat, and arguably more importantly, help your cat to have fun with you!

Each session includes:

  • 45 minute virtual session via Zoom

  • Access to the recording

  • Written breakdown of training steps

  • 2 weeks of email support

Starting Phone Call - $50 

The Starting Phone Call is a great way to work with me if you have are dealing with a mild behavioral issue and you need some professional direction. This is also a great option for those who need to be frugal at this time, or who are unsure of whether they are ready for a full session. This 30 minute call does not include a detailed discussion about your cat's behavioral or medical history, so it would not be appropriate for more complex cases, such as litter box issues or aggression. If you are interested in a mini consult, please contact me and I will assess whether I feel this option is appropriate for your needs. 

Each mini session includes:

  • 30 minute phone call

  • Emailed resources

Follow Up Support Options

If you need additional support following a session, I offer a few other ways that we can communicate. These options work great for people who are keeping busy and just need some quick support here and there. We can experiment with whichever options you would like to try, as this is about what works best for us to communicate, and each client (and case) is different. All communication is charged per minute, and will be prorated from the standard virtual session rate of $100/hour. Invoices will be sent on a monthly basis.

Options

  • Video or voice messaging via WhatsApp, Voxer, or Marco Polo

  • Email or text support

  • Scheduled phone call

Please note that some cases are more complex and cannot be sufficiently addressed with limited back-and-forth communication - for these cases, a one hour session may be required.

Follow me on Instagram!

I post on Instagram almost daily with LIVE virtual training sessions, training tips, product testing, adoptable foster cats, and more! I have so much fun with this account, and I think it shows. My Instagram handle for my business account is @cathappyconsulting. I plan to do loads of awesome things on here in 2021, including Foster Cat Friday (featuring adoptable foster cats), Q&A sessions, and interviews with other professionals who focus on cat behavior, training, nutrition, health, and energy healing.

I also have a community service account called North County Cat Network, and the Instagram handle is @northcountycatnetwork. This is a page for free resources and information about cats in the North County, San Diego area. I am making an effort to post videos about cats who need homes, lost cats, TNR, socializing cats and kittens, and more! Please be sure to follow this page as well, as rescue and TNR (trap-neuter-return) are very close to my heart.
