My name is T. I'm a certified cat behavior consultant and cat end-of-life doula here to support cat care-givers; no matter where your cat is on their life's journey, I’m here to help! I have certifications through IAABC (Certified Cat Behavior Consultant, Associate Certified Shelter Behavior - Cat) and Fear Free Pets (Certified Animal Trainer). In 2023, I completed UVM’s Companion Animal End-of-Life Doula Professional Certificate program to offer this service to my clients. I offer both in-person and virtual services, depending on your location and preference.
I have experience with: litter box issues, shy/fearful cats, former feral/outdoor cats, aggression issues between cats, behavior challenges caused by medical conditions (such as: feline diabetes, hyperthyroid, stomatitis, IBD, and arthritis), and more! As a disabled and chronically ill person, working with cats with chronic medical conditions is a special joy for me!

If your cat is approaching their end-of-life, or you’re having concerns about their current quality of life, I have seen many cats through their end-of-life journeys and would be honored to help support you and your cat through that journey. This is an incredibly stressful—yet sacred—time for both cat and care-giver. While I can’t make your cat’s health better, you don’t have to walk this journey alone.

With over 10 years of experience serving local rescues and shelters, I have helped hundreds of cats find their homes and am pleased to offer behavior services for shelters and rescues! In addition to my credentials listed above, I am a Fear Free Shelters Graduate. I offer flexible behavior plans to fit the needs and limitations of your rescue or shelter.
