Hello and welcome for logging into my account and taking the time to read my bio. I became the first animal behaviour technician (ABT)with the APBC in the UK I regularly run kitten kindergarten courses and owner education webinars - please ask me for details of these. My passion is cats - feral to feline show champion and solving all their quirky unwanted issues that can manifest from time to time- I have worked alongside charities for many years helping rehabilitate cats from surrender and euthanasia. I previously had my own cattery fostering and rehabilitating shelter cats, enabling them to go in to have happy lives with their new owners. I love engaging with clients and navigating my way around using my interpersonal skills that come with meeting with the human caregivers and deciphering what problems they are having , as well as using my detective skills to find out what the cats problems are - so it’s a two way approach to trying to find a balance where life is harmonious again for cat and for their human guardian. The problems I get get asked to help with tend to range from spraying , house soiling , geriatric issues , over grooming , aggression and anxiety to name a few and I work alongside your veterinary professional and CAB - but as a behavioural technician I also deal with new pet introductions as well as stepping in if a new baby is on the way as this in itself is a big life changing even for the whole family including the feline members . Helping the owners to enrich their cats lives and build back bonds that have become broken is so rewarding. No one wants to rehome a cat so it’s always worth seeing if a behavioural modification therapy plan can work first. It’s takes effort , it takes time and it’s not a quick fix but I’m totally committed to helping both cat and owner to finding their way to live their best lives together - all nine of them !! A vet medical check is needed before engaging with any plan as many underlying health conditions can manifest as a behavioural problem. After a face to face or zoom / phone consultation with a client a full report and plan is sent and then 24/7 support whilst the plan is worked through its varying stages . The best stage of all is the thank you , things are working out or things are improving message from the owner because I know they speak for the cat too. So if you feel like you want some advice, don’t be afraid to ask , you might just nip something in the bud or prevent a whole bunch of issues that could become embedded behaviour.
