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!"

This was a great experience! Stephen is extremely knowledgeable and makes meeting with him very affordable. I've met with pet behaviorists before and feel like I got a lot more from 30 minutes or so with Stephen than with others I've met with who charged about ten times the price and spent hours with me on the phone. Highly recommended if you have some specific issues you want advice on.

Stephen was so wonderful and personable! He helped me and my boyfriend resolve behavioral issues with our younger cat. He offered multiple additional resources for help and gave us a few different activities to try to help with the situation. Stephen is very knowledgeable and takes the time to help all kinds of different kitty problems! I highly recommend Stephen to anyone who has minor to major cat behavioral problems. He also provides some additional tips and tricks to help keep your cat busy and happy!

If you are not a cat person and reading this...well just speak to Stephen anyway, its not just about cats. If you are, you definitely want to speak to Stephen - he has so much to share, and comes from a great place. A lovely experience for all humans (and their furry friends, not only for cats!)

This was a very helpful experience. I booked at the last second after having a rough experience attempting to give my new adoptees meds. Stephen had concrete suggestions to make the process better for us all. There were only two families on the call so there was enough personal attention to the issues we were both looking to learn about and he’s clearly very experienced in this field. He also invited us to ask follow up questions via email or Airbnb if we wanted or needed to, which takes this experience from a great value to an amazing one.

Stephen is a very exprienced, knowledgable, and above all, the most kind host you will ever meet. He prepared a lot for each of guests beforehand, and after the session je also provides with more information that is personized for everyone who joined the session. I am very grateful for his advice and help. I would arecommend this for anyone who love cats or have a cat. One thing I really want to add here again is how talented and considerate Stephen is. He made everyone feel very comfortable and made sure that no one leaves with unasked questions. Even if you are a shy person or one who found it hard to interact with people over Zoom, I am sure you will feel very welcomed and had a quality and personal interaction with the host, Stephen, as he is very attentive and caring to the guests :)
