If you have found yourself on this page it’s likely that you are experiencing some form of cat related issue. But don’t worry, help is at hand.

Anita Kelsey is one of the most respected accredited cat behaviourists in her field and is a full member of The Canine and Feline Behaviour Association. This means that you can call and ask your pet insurance whether you are able to make a claim for any behaviour consultations. Most pet insurance companies will accept claims from behaviourists who are full members of the CFBA but please do check with them first.

It’s easy to book an appointment with Anita. She is based in Notting Hill, West London and travels to most areas within London. She will also travel to other parts of the Uk but would need to charge extra travel costs.

All you need to do is ask your vet to refer your case to Anita using the cat behaviour vet referral form which can easily be emailed over to them or printed out and taken along. This will be after your vet has checked that nothing medical may be causing the unwanted behaviours.

Once your referral has been received Anita will be in contact with you asap to arrange an appointment. A referral from a vet rules out any medical issues so that we can all be sure the problem is behaviourial.

Nero (photo taken on a behaviour home consultation visit)

I was recommended to seek Anita’s help by a friend with Nero’s over grooming. He had no problems before our older 16 year cat Hector had to be put to sleep 2.5 years ago. Nero was very attached to Hector and looked up to him like a companion, protector, parent and friend all rolled into one. When Hector was put to sleep we were very upset but didn’t realise the effect Hector’s passing had on Nero. Anita immediately realised the importance of this and asked us lot of questions and was very understanding and non-judgmental. We felt we had let Nero down and needed help so we could help him with his anxiety and make him feel secure. I followed Anita’s advice and took Nero to our Vet, his blood was checked and skin biopsies were taken. He has no underlying medical condition.

Anita gave us lots of practical help and ideas with toys, games and other helpful ideas so we could distract Nero and stop him from over grooming himself. We have made a lot of changes and I am glad to report that Nero isn’t grooming himself as much as he used to, and is much happier and playful.

I would not hesitate in recommending Anita to anyone with cat related problems. Anita has a clear understanding of cats and their needs and puts them above human needs.

Thank you Anita.
