Private Cat Consults

Due to the important role environment plays in feline behaviour, cat consults are only offered virtually at this time.

The experienced cat consultants at Calgary Humane Society offer private one-on-one sessions for cat owners and their cats. Learn the latest science-based behaviour modification techniques for minimizing undesirable behaviours and encouraging appropriate ones. Our cat consults focus on learning your cat’s specific needs and environment so we can best identify the problem and offer adequate solutions.
