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-$300+). 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
+ Scratching Furniture
+ Aggression During Petting or Play
+ Early Morning Wake Up or Night Crazies
+ Food Aggression
+ Litter Box Issues
+ Cat Socialization
+ Dislike of Pick Up
+ And More

Welcome to group therapy for cat owners!

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

I've been on eventbrite.com answering behavioral questions about people's cats. Sonali, the founder of Petminded.co said, "Stephen hosted two cat webinars for the Petminded Community in May 2020. These live sessions had from 80-100 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!"

Stephen was great! He was very thoughtful and thorough in his approach to helping us with our cats. Super easy to talk to and followed up with a summary for us to keep for reference. I honestly can’t think of anything he could have done better. He is definately a go to if you want to learn more about your cat and it’s behaviors.

Stephen reached out to us in advance of the session for a description of our cat’s behavioral issues. He sent us some articles in advance and then provided advice and answered questions during the session. We shared the time with one other cat owner, which was a good balance. Stephen was generous with his advice and time and even went a few minutes over time. Highly recommended!

This experience was a gift from a family member for me and I’m so glad they purchased it. Anyone who loves cats will love the interaction between the host Stephen and all the other participants. He is very knowledgable, interested in what your cat problems maybe and includes experiences of his own with his own cat family. I cannot recommend this experience enough for all “Cat” people. The offer to stay in touch via correspondence was also a lovely touch. It quite simply is a must and a lovely gift as it was for me. Thankyou

Stephen was incredibly thorough, making sure to get all the details of our cats beforehand and really worked to understand the issues we were trying to tackle. He clearly cares deeply about cats and is also very non-judgemental. I would recommend anyone interested to go ahead with it - some things we learnt may be impossible to solve, but it's better to know that than to keep worrying we're bad cat parents! Thanks again Stephen!

Very good experience! Stephen is a very sympathetic guy, easy to talk to, with positive vibes and energy. We had a pleasant chat and he helped us understand some of our cat behaviours and gave useful advises and tips. I would definitely recommend it to all cat-lovers out there!

This was an awesome experience. Stephen personalized our experience by getting information about our cats and preparing individualized lessons for them. There was plenty of time to ask questions and learn about our furry friends, in addition to addressing the concerns we raised at the outset. Stephen is really knowledgeable and charming. We will be recommending this to all the cat lovers in our lives.
