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 NOT per person and you may request custom times!**

Cat owners have few places to turn to get cat behavior help, and if they find it, it's usually very expensive (typically $150-$500+). The alternative is either a facebook group where people toss ideas at you like a game of darts or online articles that don't listen to you or respond! What I provide is a comprehensive and compassionate plan!

After welcoming you I will briefly discuss my professional background and some typical behavior categories and how to 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

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, including 8 years with the ASPCA. I've given many 100's of behavior consults to people in need. With compassion, I help people and their cats. I'm Fear Free certified, see fearfreepets.com.

I consult for shelters, rescues and vet practices in NYC and around the USA & I've been on eventbrite.com giving webinars on cat behavior. Sonali Ingram, the CEO of Petminded.co said, "Stephen hosted two cat webinars for the Petminded Community...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!"

Don’t want to make this too long and believe me, I could write pages about how much we enjoyed Stephen’s consultation. He is a down-to-earth guy, very knowledgeable, and very detail oriented. If you are reading this review, you may be on the fence trying to figure out if this is worth it and believe me, IT IS!

I can’t recommend Stephen highly enough! Since I booked a little further in advance, he even took some time prior to our private session to get to know more about my cat and provided me with suggestions and materials to review ahead of the full session. He’s passionate, has tremendous insight, and left us with clear, actionable next steps on how to address some of the issues we’ve been experiencing with our cat.

Wow, what an amazing experience. Stephen is obviously a qualified expert, but he is also a really warm and personable host. He went above and beyond in helping me figure out how to stop my cats from fighting. He is a pro and a joy to be around. The experience was really fun, and helpful. Exceeded expectations!

We really love the experience with Stephan! Although we were not looking for this behavior help and we say it by random - we were so happy to find it. Stephan was so patient and kind, he took a lot of time to help individually. Also he knows a lot about cat behavior and had a lot of tips. We can HIGHLY recommend any cat owner to talk to Stephan! Thank you again, it was really wonderful! We will let you know when we are in New York :)
