Why choose us

CAT-astrophes is a cat-only behaviour consultancy, which has been in operation for over 15 years. We consult with clients throughout the UK and worldwide, helping resolve cat behaviour problems by taking a holistic, positive and education-based approach.

We understand that it is totally upsetting when a cat develops unwanted behaviours and it is often difficult for you, the owner, to understand why this might be happening. The consequences of this can be disruptive, very distressing, and the difficult decision to part with your beloved cat may often be considered the only option. This need not be the case if you seek the help and support of a qualified and experienced Feline Behaviour Consultant.

The aim of CAT-astrophes is to restore harmony between you, your cat, and its environment. If your cat has a behaviour problem that you would like to discuss, please call Kim on 07786 546260 or email kim@cat-astrophes.com.

Our Consultations

Behaviour consultations take place only by veterinary referral. This is to ensure that there are no underlying medical issues that might be causing or contributing to the behaviour problem.

Consultations can either take place via a home visit, or remotely using Skype or Zoom. Consultations usually last about two hours during which time the cat’s history will be explored in greater depth, and the problem behaviour is assessed. At the end of the consultation, a diagnosis is made and the motivation for the behaviour explained.

This will be followed up with an extensive and in-depth behaviour modification plan to eradicate problem behaviours and help your cat to become happy and problem-free.

Insurance cover

If your cat is insured you may wish to check your insurance policy as many pet insurance companies will pay for behaviour consultations if carried out by a Certified Clinical Animal Behaviourist (CCAB), or a full member of the APBC.
