Behavior interview

EDENVANE, behavior consultant specializing in companion cats and breeding cats

Please note: we only accept interviews if people are motivated to follow the recommendations.

If you are not ready to make changes, the concern will not be resolved as you are paying for advice, but it is almost only your level of involvement that will determine the outcome.

In which cases can the Cat Behavior Advisor help you?

In addition to this, you need to know more about it.

  • When you are having difficulty with your cat , for example when:

- he does his business without litter

- it degrades your interior by its scratches

- he attacks you, bites, claws, hurts

- does not get along with another animal, or a person, is afraid of it

- he seems stressed and / or too sensitive to you

- he compulsively licks himself, harms himself, etc.

In addition to this, you will need to know more about it.

  • When you want to anticipate a stressful situation such as:

- move

- arrival of a baby or new member of the family

- adoption of another animal, etc.

In addition to this, you will need to know more about it.

  • When you want to understand it better and learn how to further improve its well-being .

Misconceptions from misinterpretations (like cats like bleach, like clean litter boxes ...) and bad advice (like using "pheromones", putting the boxes in quiet rooms, cleaning urine stains with vinegar or essential oils ...) are so numerous that it is important to review the bad beliefs that circulate in order to avoid certain errors.

Does it really work ?

In addition to this, you will need to know more about it.

It's a bit like with your vet: some cases are more complex than others.

For example, in the presence of intestinal worms, administration of a vermicide is usually sufficient to resolve the problem. But in the event of gall contamination, it will take more time and investment on your part to get back to normal. And if there is cancer, there are protocols but the chances of cures are less.

Likewise, there are cases which are generally quick and easy to resolve via the behaviorist (such as urine / faeces outside the tank) and other cases which take longer to resolve (such as when a loss of confidence, trauma) or may not even provide the hoped-for solution (for example sometimes - this is very rare, rest assured - cohabitation between certain cats may prove to be impossible).

But an experienced professional can enlighten you on the average success percentages of similar cases after the situation is explained.

In addition to this, you will need to know more about it.

However , the most decisive point for "it really works" is to follow all the recommendations correctly.

Here again it is like at the vet: if you do not give the treatment to your animal according to the prescribed protocol, there is little chance that he will recover at best.

I sometimes hear people criticizing colleagues saying that the result is only partial, and then they admit that they only followed part of the advice given ...

The Behavioralist is therefore neither a magician nor an astrologer, but he is the most competent professional in the event of behavior concerns. He is a specialist consultant who must have followed a training mainly based on ethology, a discipline based on scientific studies of animal behavior. He has learned the needs and natural habits of our companions, which allows him to better understand them and to foresee the necessary modifications. He brings you his advice as a trained professional.

Now there are some excellent vets and some not so good: it's the same in all professions.

To choose your behaviorist well, check that he has at least been trained! Some exercise without any training… (for the moment).

We feline behavior consultants need to understand cats but also their owners, and we need to be able to understand them and properly explain the situation to them in order to truly help them. This is why good behaviorists have also studied psychology and human communication, because in a problematic human / cat relationship there are two sides to understand and to alleviate.

How's it going ?
In addition to this, you will need to know more about it.

After a first contact outlining your summary of the situation and if any cause of veterinary origin has been previously ruled out, I could tell you if it is possible to help you and if an interview is necessary or not (sometimes - as in certain cases aggressive behavior for example - maybe your problem could be solved with a few quick tips: you won't pay anything then).

In addition to this, you will need to know more about it.

If it needs to be developed, we can agree on a maintenance date.

Edenvane offers its meetings in the afternoons of Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday (and possibly Saturday morning or Sunday morning).

In addition to this, you need to know more about it.

In any case, I do not intervene if the home cat (s) are subject to:

In addition to this, you will need to know more about it.

- Synthetic "pheromones"
even if recommended by the veterinarian

- anxiolytics / antidepressants: discuss the possibility of stopping with your veterinarian if you want me to intervene.
Zylkene, other dietary supplements and herbal products can be stored worry-free
(be careful with products based on essential oils because some are toxic to cats - including catnip).

- arguments / reprimands / punishments
I know it's hard, especially if the cat is caught in the act, but it's ESSENTIAL to stop before the interview.

In addition to this, you need to know more about it.

We will then discuss together the points that can guide my analysis of the situation via a precise and complete questionnaire, in order to determine the probable origins of the disturbing behaviors for you.

Then, once my anamnesis is established, I will be able to offer you the small changes necessary for the return of a serene relationship, always in the sweetness, the positive, the respect for the nature of your cat, and in agreement with you.

Therefore, a single interview - about 3 to 4 hours - is sufficient , in the vast majority of cases (longer if there is a diet advice section).
An email or telephone follow-up (included in the package) will make it possible to refine the recommendations if necessary and to determine the moment when any temporary changes can be removed, if you wish.

Seeing the living area and the accessories dedicated to the cat is also important - sometimes even more! - that your answers to the questions to be able to understand what may cause concern, which is why the visit on the spot is to be privileged (if there is no competent professional close enough to you to be able to come, we suggest use Skype but photos will then be necessary; see “remote interview” below).

Remote maintenance.

In addition to this, you need to know more about it.

If there is no one you trust near you, we can arrange to chat via Skype.

But for that you will have to send me, before the interview :

In addition to this, you will need to know more about it.

- photos * of all the rooms in the house (visible in full)

In addition to this, you will need to know more about it.

- photos * of scratching posts / cat trees, bowls and litter boxes
(not too close: I have to see their location in the room)

Rates and regulations.

In order not to be pressed for time and to make sure that you will have all the answers you want, I do not charge by the hour but offer a package at 89 € including :

In addition to this, you need to know more about it.

     - an interview of about 3 to 4 hours (sometimes longer, depending on the case)

     - follow-up by phone or email

In addition to this, you will need to know more about it.

Travel costs depend on mileage and tolls : they are free up to 10 km (from 50 rue de Lixheim in Hilbesheim, reference: Viamichelin , fastest route) then count 2.50 € for each additional 5 km and the costs of any tolls.

In addition to this, you will need to know more about it.

If the amount is a bit high for you, it is quite possible to pay in 2 installments (see below).

In addition to this, you will need to know more about it.

And then in some cases, reviewing the cat's diet can be essential to obtain real results (compulsive licking, ingestion of inedible materials, cat overweight, ...) also add some advice on the diet may sometimes be necessary and it will take about 1 hour more to the duration of our exchanges.

And since the majority of current advice given on cat feeding is often catastrophic for our small carnivores, I strongly encourage all cat owners who are not followed by a veterinary nutritionist or an agronomist to choose this option ( especially for those who think that kibble is the best there is), even if it is not really necessary for the problem encountered with their cat: this is why we offer the supplement "feeding advice" at a low reduced price (€ 31) during maintenance. Do not hesitate: no one has ever regretted this choice because there are important points addressed, which can help preserve the health of the cat (such as less risk for the urinary system for example), sometimes your wallet ( it is not because it is expensive and known that it is great ... and it is sometimes possible to feed better for less!) and even improve your daily life (less loss of hair or droppings for example ).
