HDC Behaviour, run by experienced animal behaviour consultant Susan Gammage, provides a compassionate, scientific-based service to help owners who have problems with cat behaviour.

Cat Behaviour Problems

Cats are often said be aloof and independent, and do not need us except to feed them. We understand that cats have a variety of needs, and if these are not being met, then behavioural problems can arise. By looking at how cats live in natural conditions we can gain a better understanding of our cats. With this information we can provide for them a full and comfortable life living in our homes.

Cat behaviour problems include inappropriate urination, scratching furniture, aggression towards people or other cats, fur pulling, eating inappropriate material (pica), spraying, fighting, hiding, anxiety, fearfulness, litter tray training, introducing a new cat.
Cats are very trainable and respond to positive reinforcement and clicker training.
Contact us to discuss your cat’s behavioural problem, and a positive way forward for you and your cat.

Cat Behaviour Consultations

We will contact your vet prior to the consultations regarding medical treatment that may be relevant to your cat’s behavioural problem.

  • Initial consultations last between one and two hours.
  • A display of the behavioural problems is not required.
  • We will need information regarding your cat’s history and daily life.
  • Behavioural modification programmes are individually designed for each cat.

A report will be sent to the referring vet providing details of how the behaviour problem is to be resolved.
