About CAT-astrophes

CAT-astrophes is run by Kim Houston, an expert in cat behaviour. Kim is a Certified Clinical Animal Behaviourist (CCAB), and a Full Member of the Association of Pet Behaviour Counsellors (APBC).

It is upsetting when a cat develops unwanted behaviours and it is often difficult for the owner to understand why this might be happening. The consequences can be disruptive and 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.

CAT-astrophes will help you understand why your cat is displaying unwanted behaviours and will then work with you, using gentle and positive techniques, to take steps to address the problems. Most unwanted or inappropriate behaviours can be modified or eliminated using the correct methods.

Behaviour consultations take place only on 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, by telephone or via Skype, depending on your location. Consultations usually last about two hours.  Further information about the consultation process can be found here.

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
