Attention seeking

Our approach

Cat owners can have their own specific problems, which can usually be rectified over a period of time. Home visits are usual for cat cases, though ‘remote’ assessments are also available.

General behavioural assessment

Each case is treated individually, taking approximately 2.5 - 3hrs, evaluating the emotional and general mood state together with the motivational cause - most importantly the cause is then treated rather than the behaviour.

Cases should be referred by the owners veterinary surgeon, assuring the owner that the problem is not medically related - this can be particularly true if the behaviour has had a sudden onset.

Remote behavioural assessment

Whilst not as in-depth as a full general assessment some cases can addressed remotely. This would consist of you providing video footage of the home, garden environment, the social interactions of the cat(s) together with the problem behaviour (where possible). When required a phone or video call can be added. This is more cost effective for most owners.

Initial contact will be made either via the telephone, email or 'Questionnaire', at which point basic details will be take and a suitable appointment time will be made.

Contact will then be made via the telephone or email whereupon if required additional information will be given. For some cases such as aggression a practical follow up session may be advantageous.
