A good behaviorist is one of the best tools you can have! When working with a behaviorist, you should make sure that you are working with a Certified Cat Behavior Consultant (CCBC). Today’s behaviorists are the best detectives you can have. They will assess your case thoroughly, ask for your Vet records in advance, and give you a “get well plan.”
Most Behaviorists charge $300 or so. They will send you a very detailed Questionnaire. They will schedule a Video conference with you and your cat(s) and ask you to show them around your house, so that they can provide you with helpful solutions.
A good Behaviorist should be a trusted member of your “team,” just as your Veterinarian should be.
Behaviorists can help with:
- Inappropriate Urination
- Separation Anxiety
- Scratching or Biting
- Extreme vocalization
