What you'll do

Do you have a cat behavior problem that you want help with? Have you ever felt like you and your cat could use some couples counseling? This Educational Experience is primarily for people who have cats, and who want to help their cat be happy and well adjusted. **Booking cost is per household!

Cat owners have few places to turn to get cat behavior help, and if they find it, it's usually very expensive (typically $150-$400+). This experience aims to solve that by putting people together in small groups & spreading the cost! For private sessions see "What to bring" below.

After welcoming you (and maybe your cat too!) I will briefly discuss my professional background and some typical types of cat behaviors and how to compassionately address them.

The heart of this experience is interacting with you! I will listen to you describe your cat's behavior problems and then using insights and behavior "tools" I will guide you in helping your cat be the best cat they can be.

I will explain WHY your cat is likely behaving this way. Then we will make a behavior PLAN for you to implement.

Common challenges include:
+ Fearful Cats
+ Cat on Cat Aggression
+ Food Obsession
+ Aggression During Petting or Play
+ Early Morning Wake Up or Night Crazies
+ Scratching Furniture
+ Litter Box Issues
+ Cat Socialization
+ And More

Welcome to group therapy for cat owners!

I've worked as the Feline Behavior Coordinator at one of the largest animal shelters in the United States and where no animal is euthanized for space, and I've been working with cats since 2002. I've given 100's of behavior consults to people who've had a cat behavior problem. With compassion, I help people and their cats. I'm Fear Free certified, see fearfreepets.com.

I consult for shelters, rescues and vet practices & I've been on eventbrite.com giving webinars on cat behavior. Sonali, the CEO of Petminded.co said, "Stephen hosted two cat webinars for the Petminded Community in May 2020. These live sessions had 100+ people and received tremendous feedback. I would highly recommend Stephen for any cat behavior related issues - you don't want to miss an opportunity to get his expertise!"

What an awesome opportunity! Thank you so much, I learnt a lot about my own cats and about cats in general and felt very welcomed. A unique experience. I think the cats really enjoyed it too:)

Our experience with Stephen was excellent. He listened to all our concerns and was thoughtful and thorough in his recommendations. He sent us materials before and after our experience. He shared great resources and guidance. We feel confident in our next steps to improve life for our Kit.

No encantó conocer a Stephen, preparó una plática especial para mi hijo de 8 años en la que le enseñó como leer las actitudes de los gatos y le contó de que se trataba su trabajo (mi hijo quiere ser un entrenador de gatos también). Me encantó su disponibilidad para hacer una sesión para niños y su buena aproximación hacia mi hijo! Super profesional!

Stephen is amazing! Even if you don't think your cat needs behavioral work, I highly recommend booking a session. Our cats are pretty well-adjusted, so we were just looking to understand them better—and after chatting with Stephen, I feel like we do! He gave us great insights into their moods and tips to make them feel more comfortable with us and each other. Also, I booked a private session for my boyfriend's birthday, and there was even a note that said "Happy Birthday Wesley" on the screen before our Zoom :) Truly a 5 star experience all around.

Wow, just wow! Stephen is so professional, prepared, and knowledgeable . We learned so much that we can apply to our Lola to overcome her fears and anxiety. He not only helped Lola, but he gave us confidence . We cannot thank Steven enough and highly recommend his sessions. He is the most patient and caring cat behaviorist you will ever find. Thank you!

Stephen is a great host. The session was fun, well organized, and Stephen gave very helpful suggestions to help me with the kitty issues I’ve had with my two adolescent cats. Well done!
