We see a lot of cats and kittens these days “behaving badly”. This may be attributable to poor socialisation as a kitten or as a result of environmental conditioning. Cats live in a hectic modern world, all competing for limited resources and territory. Some cats just can’t cope with the demands of modern inner suburban life. This can lead to anxiety and stress related problems such as inter-cat aggression, urination disorders, anxiety related vocalisation or biting.
We offer extended consults to help adequately define and diagnose any of these problems. To help solve these, we spend extra time with you and your cat getting to know both of you and to try pin point a potential cause. We try to identify any home modifications which will help curb some behavioural issues. Sometimes, intervention with behaviour modifying drugs can help curb the unwanted behaviours and help your cat learn more positive coping skills.
