I Ringwood Barn Cottages, Minster Lovell,, Witney, Oxfordshire, OX29 0NE, United Kingdom
INFORMATIONI am a cat specialist. As well as a COAPE diploma, I have a first class degree in applied animal behaviour and I have written several best selling cat books. I have just got a masters degree in clinical animal behaviour.
Cats are not dogs, which is why I do not work with dogs. Cats are sensitive to changes in routine, new animals in the household or nearby. I only work with neutered pet cats. Other COAPE practitioners are expert on breeding cats.
I do behaviour consultations, on vet's referral only, within a 30 mile radius of Witney. Occasionally further. A full questionnaire and a visit to your house/flat is essential. Currently I can only do a limited amount of casework.
I can help with house soiling, litter tray problems, and aggression. A stress reduction programme for cats with recurrent idiopathic cystitis can also be helpful.I cannot help reduce killing wildlife, which is natural behaviour.
I can offer a free science-based talk on common cat behaviour problems for veterinary surgeries in my area and I have lectured at Oxford University adult education.
My website has referenced details of husbandry and behaviour for cats, rabbits, guinea pigs and hamsters. All FREE.
