Live in Harmony with your Cat

Is your cat’s behavior stressing you out? If you’re stressed, your cat is probably stressed, too. I can help you and your family live in harmony with your cat. You will gain a better understanding of your cat and her behavior so you can appreciate and enjoy your feline family member more than ever before—and your cat will be happier, too!

Puuuuurrsss....

Miles and Albee are doing well. We used your suggestions for training Albee to use the scratching posts and pads instead of the rugs and new chairs. We went away for a week and did the things you said, and they didn’t pee on anything. Thanks for everything!

My heart is bursting with love and joy today because last night while I was laying on the couch, Tuxy jumped up and laid on my chest! She has sat next to me but never on me. I am forever grateful that I found you!

Our son was born in late August. We have been completely caught in the whirlwind of new parenthood. Kiku has been amazing. She hasn’t acted aggressively towards the baby in any way. Lots of people have come in and out and Kiku has been very calm. Thanks for all the help you provided to prepare us and her for the baby.

We had another successful trip from Sunday to Monday—no peeing accidents. I’m so glad that I found you to help us through this. You helped me understand Zephyr’s needs and meet her where she is so she and I can be our most successful. I’m hopeful that with what we have learned, we can avoid issues going forward and continue to assist her in being a successful family member.

I’ve been following everything the behavior plan you sent. Wow did it help so much! I’ve actually been seeing Butters using the litter box consistently. Thank you so much for all the help!

Nathaley R.

Hermes has been doing very well with the training. Last night towards the end of our training he was getting up on the cat tree without me even asking because he knew that’s where he would get treats. Thanks so much for all your help!

Alyce and Zoe R.

My huge thanks to you for all your help. We feel so much better having the various approaches you taught us at our disposal. And it’s a huge relief having peace in the household. I get so sad when the cats are upset, so it’s nice feeling empowered to help them.

Everything seems to be going fine, we actually can’t quite believe it! Henry and Willow are doing really well together. They are happily sleeping together and grooming each other again, which is great. I can’t thank you enough for all the help you provided. We really couldn’t have done this without you!

Michael and Lauren P.

So glad I found you online, I was so nervous about taking Buddy in and my cats being accepting of him. You have been a tremendous help in this whole transition and the biggie… no more Ming alarm clock!!!! We’ve come a long way six weeks. Thank you so much for your help and expertise! Thanks for everything Paula! You’re the best!!!

Michelle M.

Thank you so much for helping us with Twinky. She has made amazing strides and is so happy here. You helped turn us into amazing kitty parents.

Esther M.

We really appreciate the help you gave us with introducing Peggy and Calvin—not clear we could have gotten here without it. We are happy with where things are, and if they get even more compatible, that’s a bonus.

Nancy K. and Bruce M.

We officially moved on Sunday, and Florence is doing VERY WELL. Way better than expected! He seems excited and curious about the new sites out the windows. I used all the information you sent me. Thank you for all of your suggestions and guidance! Definitely will be recommending you!

Tera H.

You have been SO helpful and we really appreciate it. Frank seems much happier than he was, which makes us all happier.

Linda H.

Zebee and Foxy are co-existing. I’ve had many tears of joy over this, I never thought this day would come. Thanks again for all your help.

Kelly H.

Orion is doing well. No litter box accidents, hasn’t attacked our feet while sleeping in a long time, and really settling in nicely. We can hold him more and pet him more, and he’s enjoying good window time as he loves watching the birds, chipmunks, and squirrels. Thank you so much … you have been super helpful.

Pamela G.

You have such great and practical ideas! Can’t thank you enough for all of your help. I’ve so enjoyed working with you.

Judi F.

Thanks so much to you, Wabi and Sabi learned to get over their fear and live without anxiety, and they just love being brushed, after you taught me how to entice them into it. And I love having them here. So you should be very proud of the work you do. W&S are an outstanding success!

Laureen B.

The cats are doing very well! Thank you again for all your help. You helped us and the cats get through quarantine together, and we’re so happy you did!

Mike L. and Alice C.

I rescued a gorgeous orange female cat, Apricot, who would attack any hand that came into view. Even the hand that was attempting to feed her! My intent had been to put Apricot up for adoption, but I knew adoption was out of the question until something could be done about this terrible habit. I turned to Paula Garber who came to observe my interactions with Apricot. Paula devised a detailed plan of action, which I followed to the letter. In a few short weeks, Apricot no longer attacked hands, became receptive to stroking and affection, and was adopted by a wonderful family. A year has since passed and, according to Apricot’s adopter, she is the perfect pet, and is very much loved.

Adrienne H.

All of the info you send is so clear and concise and it has had a huge impact on the way Reggie and Leo are getting to know each other. I don’t know how I could have done this without you!

Anne-Marie P.

We are very happy with the results of all the work we put in using the knowledge you have given us. We make sure to be more sensitive to Simba’s needs, and he is much happier now.

Force-free Training

My approach to training cats and modifying their behavior is positive and force-free. The techniques I use are evidence based, kind, and effective and take into account your cat’s physical, emotional, and environmental well-being for maximum effectiveness. Because every case is unique, I provide solutions that are customized to each individual cat and client.
