Helping cats and their guardians live happily together
Do you have a friend or family member who has a cat with behavioral issues? Why not gift them a certificate to speak with a certified cat behavior consultant who can help address “naughty cat” issues. Marci Koski of Feline Behavior Solutions works with cat parents to prevent cats from being abandoned, abused or surrendered to shelters as the result of treatable behavioral issues. She provides cat parents with the education and tools to prevent or treat behavior problems. You can purchase a certificate for an in-person or a virtual or Skype training session for the cat lover on your list.
