Cats are
amazing creatures

They bring such joy to our lives. When they are stressed, in pain, or their needs aren’t being met, they might bite, stop using their litter box, scratch furniture, or exhibit other undesirable behaviors.

As a cat parent who loves their cat (or cats) very much, these behaviors can be extra stressful because you don’t want to be angry with your pet. Can’t things just go back to how they were before? Why is my cat, who I really love, acting like this? It takes a huge mental toll on you!

Thankfully, there is cat behavior help available so you don’t need to navigate this alone. Rather than rehoming a cat with behavior problems, Class Act Cats is a Minneapolis, Minnesota based cat behavior consultation service run by Certified Cat Behavior Consultant Joey Lusvardi designed to turn your cat from sassy to classy. 

We service cats of all ages, from kittens to senior cats, virtually and, if needed, in home in Minneapolis, St. Paul, and surrounding suburbs. Joey has extensive experience helping shy or fearful cats, preventing and managing territorial behavior, helping cats stop fighting, and more. Whatever your concern is, Joey can help!

You’ll set the goals for what you want to accomplish. We’ll make the process as low stress as possible and at times, it will even be fun! You’ll learn to love your cat again.

What Is A Cat Behavior Consultation?

A behavior consultation is as a more comprehensive form of cat training. You’ll meet with an expert in cat behavior (sometimes referred to as a cat behavior consultant, cat behaviorist, cat whisperer, or even a cat therapist) to assess your cat’s unwanted behavior and figure out how to address it. You’ll get an individualized plan for what to do next to address your cat’s behavior and, if needed, support to change the plan.

Cat Behavior Help
For Every Situation

Behavior consultations can answer a variety of questions about cat behavior including:

  • Why is my cat being aggressive?
  • Why isn’t my cat using the litter box?
  • How do I stop my cat from biting me?
  • Why are my cats fighting?
  • How do I stop my cat from peeing on the flood?
  • Why is my cat meowing so much?

During our consultation, we’ll figure out the reason behind your cat’s behavior and how to change it.

Successfully modifying your cat’s behavior involves different interventions and doing it on your own can be challenging. By working with a cat behavior specialist, you’ll have someone who really understands cats there guiding you on what to do next. Everything is individualized based on you and your specific cat’s needs so you won’t feel confused, stressed, or uncertain. You’ll leave feeling more confident that you and your cats will be living happily together again!
