What you'll do

Welcome to a TOP Rated Online Experience!

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 darts at a dartboard 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. Then 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 (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals). 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. I have podcasts you can watch on YouTube at http://bit.ly/StephenFelineBehaviorist or https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxvylLhQxrwg7LdJSBsSThw.

I believe deeply in a compassionate, educational, collaborative and non-judgemental approach to cat behavior.

Exactly as advertised - Stephen is a pro. He asked great questions before our meeting and really dove into our specific situation during the session. On top of bringing experience and passion to the table, he's funny, personable, and genuinely interested in how he can help improve the lives of everyone involved. If you're on the fence, what are you doing there? Schedule a session. Your feline will thank you.

Whether you have cats or are thinking about adopting one and want to know more about how to prepare, this is the perfect experience. Stephen was super available from the get go (and since I booked away ahead of time he even gave me some tips and exercises to try with my cat, so we could discuss the results during the experience), which I found to be amazing. During the experience itself he made sure everyone had the same amount of attention and time to address the reason why the experience was booked, and by having other people there and listening to Stephen advice to them I was able to learn even more. The time flew and before we knew it, it was over. I will certainly book again, and encourage everyone to do the same because Stephen's passion to cats and their behavior is something rare to find.

Meeting with Stephen was absolutely wonderful! He is so knowledgeable and sympathetic about cats with behavioural issues!! This experience was absolutely worth it, you get so much out of it! Stephen reaches out before you even meet to understand your problem and to make sure you get the most out of the session. He works with you to make a plan for your cats and sends you follow up documentation after the session with all the info so you won't forget anything. Stephen right away let me know that my cats behaviours are some of the hardest to break but that he would absolutely try his best to help. This really relieved the stress I had been feeling and was great to manage my expectations for the session. Since the session we have exchanged follow up emails and he has been so kind to answer all my questions! Overall, Stephen is delightful and so was the experience.

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!
