You’re in the right place! Catology is a premium-service cat behaviourist, here to help owners all over Australia who are serious about solving their cat behaviour issues.
If you’re reading this, it means your cat is causing you a bit (or a lot) of frustration or worry, and you’re considering a cat behaviourist.
Let me tell you something… I already like you. The fact you’ve landing on this page and even just thinking about a cat behaviourist, demonstrates that you’re a caring and committed cat guardian. You’re my type of people.
If you’re like most of my clients, you’ve probably already tried ‘solutions’ found on the internet or advice from other, well-meaning cat owners.
The fact is though, that most of the advice these days is outdated, incorrect, or even dangerous. Let’s be honest, you wouldn’t be here if the advice you were given had worked!
If you’re dealing with cat behaviour problems, a session with a cat behaviourist is a good idea. Keep reading to find out more.
My consultations are online, via video-call (Zoom or Facetime). Online is much better for the cat(s), who often feel uncomfortable with a new person in the house, causing unnecessary stress. It allows me to help cat owners all over Australia at the click of a button! It doesn’t matter if you’re looking for a cat behaviourist in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, or anywhere in Australia, I can help.
Not only do I have six years of experience helping cat owners like you, but I have qualifications from the highly-regarded Companion Animal Sciences Institute. I am also a member of the IAABC and the AABP, both organisations committed to professionalism and expertise within the animal behaviour industry.
I believe that each cat is unique and deserves an individualised approach. Each behaviour problem can have vastly different causes, which is why alot of the information you find on the internet simply doesn’t work – for your situation. I develop a tailored behaviour modification plan, followed up with 8 weeks support.
Once you’ve booked, you’ll be emailed a questionnaire to fill out and submit before the consultation.
Depending on the consultation you choose, it will go for between 1 and 3 hours. In the session, I will go though:
After the consultation, I will follow up with a detailed Behaviour Solution Plan, and keep in touch over the next 8 or so weeks to give the behaviour the best chance of resolving.
90 – 120 minutes session
Note: Payment will be requested after the consultation. Visa, Mastercard, Afterpay and Direct Deposit accepted.
I am a proud member of both the Association of Animal Behaviour Professionals, and the International Association of Animal Behaviour Consultants.
If you’re a cat guardian looking for a cat behaviourist in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane or elsewhere in Australia (or the world) don’t be shy – reach out and book or send me a message!
A cat behaviourist (sometimes called cat psychologists or cat whisperers) is an expert in cat behaviour, and has pursued a career in helping cat owners with their cat behaviour problems. Unfortunately, the cat (and animal) behaviour industry is largely unregulated, and anybody can call themselves a cat behaviourist and take your money. As a consumer, please do yourself a favour and check that your cat behaviourist has (1) experience, (2) qualifications, and (3) testimonials from previous clients. I’ve unfortunately had to help several cat owners fix behaviours worsened by people masquerading as cat experts.
A true cat behaviourist will provide evidence-based solutions, rather than attempting to actually directly ‘communicate’ with your cat on a language and cognitive-based level.
Absolutely. The magic of the internet has made it easy for you to get help if you’re looking for a cat behaviourist in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, or anywhere on Earth. Given that my consultations are online via Zoom, Facetime or Skype, I can help you anywhere in Australia or the world with an internet connection. In fact, most of my clients are in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. I even have clients in USA and Europe reach out to me for help.
I live in north QLD, Australia, though I can help out anywhere with an internet connection (most of my clients are in the capital cities). In my experience, I’ve found that video conferences are just simply much better when it comes to cats. Not only does it mean you don’t need to have a stranger in your house, but it also means that your cat doesn’t get stressed.
The majority of clients use either Facetime, Zoom or Skype, but I’m happy to work with whatever is easiest for you. Ideally you would be using a smartphone, tablet or laptop so you can show me around the territory (I can often understand more about the problem in a 5 minute house tour than in 2 hours of questions)!
Just let me know and I’ll do my best to accommodate. I only offer 4 consultations per week as I work on other content to help cat guardians (I have a membership club, daily newsletter, fortnightly column, blog for other companies, and write behaviour guides and other things). If your issue is urgent, let me know and I’ll see if I can fit you in.
When working in animal behaviour, it’s impossible to absolutely guarantee a positive outcome. There are factor which may be outside our control which can hinder or prevent a completely successful outcome. Though I have an excellent track record, and only work with clients who are able and willing to make the changes necessary for the best possible outcome.
To ensure we give it the best possible chance, I don’t put limits on my support period, like other cat behaviourists. Others will give you a defined support period of a few weeks, and ask that you pay for extra support after. My philosophy is that we are a team until the issue is fixed (which may require vet assistance if medical intervention is required) or it can’t be due to factors outside our control.
Lastly, my methods and strategies are deeply rooted in behavioural science and ethology, giving the situation the best possible chance of being resolved.
With my philosophy of treating clients’ cat behaviour issues as a ‘team project’ rather than just a consultation, I’ve found that I can only have a certain number of clients in order to provide the premium, quality service and support they need. 15 seems to be the sweet spot.
