Services and Consultation Requests
Dr. Marci Koski offers a variety of cat behavior consultation types that will provide you with the information you need to either address a behavior problem, or simply give your cat the happy and healthy life she deserves!
Price: $50 for 30-minute phone call
- General advice about having a cat, cat needs, or cat behavior
- Advice on whether your cat’s behavior is “normal”, or if you may need veterinary or behavioral help
- Advice on addressing issues such as counter-surfing, scratching furniture and other destructive behaviors, disruptive night-time activity, etc.
- For more complex issues (e.g., house-soiling or aggression), an intro-consult can provide general recommendations that may give you a place to start. Improvements are often seen with simple changes (i.e., litterbox setup fixes), but many such issues are complex and will require more than an intro-consult to fully resolve
- This call is NOT meant to fully assess your situation; this requires a full consultation so that your cat can be evaluated and provided with an appropriate behavior modification plan
- If you decide to move on to a full consult within 2 weeks after the intro-consult, the $50 cost of the intro-consult will be credited towards the price of your full behavior consultation!

Cat Well-Being Consultations are a great opportunity for you to make sure your cat has the best living life possible. These services are designed to keep your cat happy and help prevent behavior problems from occurring:
- Paws-On Training Session ($250; in-home only) – During a FUN in-home visit Dr. Koski will teach you how to give your cat the physical and mental exercise she needs, with a focus on play, positive reinforcement, and clicker-training. Mental & physical stimulation help prevent behavioral problems and improves mood – great for any cat! You’ll receive a training book and clicker, and a written summary of recommendations discussed at the visit.
- New Kitten / New Cat Info Session ($300) – Are you new to kitten or cat guardianship? No problem! During an in-home visit or video conference, Dr. Koski will answer all of your questions about giving your cat what she needs. We’ll discuss necessary resources (e.g., litterbox setup, food, toys, napping/perching spots, etc.), enrichment (physical and mental), keeping your new cat safe and secure, and address any questions you have about living with a cat. You’ll receive a summary of what we discussed, 30 days of email support, and a 30-minute follow-up phone call.
- Happy Cat, Happy Home Evaluation ($250) – Dr. Koski will visit your home to make sure that your cat has what she needs for a happy and healthy life, and to prevent common behavioral problems. Dr. Koski will take a look at your litterbox setup, the resources you’ve established for your cat, and make recommendations where things may need improvement. You’ll receive a written summary of everything discussed during the visit, including recommended resources. This is a great consultation to get if you’re preparing to add a new family member (e.g., a baby or new pet), or if you just want to make sure your cat has an environment in which she will thrive!
