The Behavior & Training Department offers cat behavior consultations and workshops for first time and experienced cat guardians. Many cat behavior issues can be readily resolved by making simple changes in how we interact with our cats and to the environment we provide them. Our Cat Behavior Hotline, 415.506.6284 is ready to help you understand your cat’s behavior. Brief complimentary consultations are available by phone. More extensive behavior consultations at MHS and your home are also available for a fee. Please call the hotline, 415.506.6284 for more information.
We regularly add new workshops to our schedule. If you do not see a current class or workshop that works for you, please contact Behavior & Training or call 415.506.6280 to find out about future offerings.
