“If anyone has any issues with their cat and its behaviour, I can’t recommend this cat behavioural therapist enough. I have no connections to her at all, I was simply recommended by my vet when my two cats (brothers ) were having issues. They were incredibly anxious and were fighting all the time. Marjan helped us so much and I’m pleased to say they are very happy to be near each other and are completely relaxed with each other now. I was also given advice on toys and food – the play mat being a complete success. It was such a wonderful experience.”

“Marjan was absolutely key to the recovery of the harmony of our home! She was so kind, non-judgemental, caring and thoughtful. A lot of people who work a lot with or know a lot about animals seem to actively dislike people, which is fair enough, but her role as an interpreter between humans and cats does require a lot of human empathy, which she has!

She spotted the problem right away and her diagnosis and plan made perfect sense. It would never have crossed my mind that that was the problem and we were quite right to seek her out as soon as we did. Although we were going to neuter Iris anyway, we may have delayed it and Mo may have wandered again before we had time to have it done.

I would be more than happy to act as a referee if she has any clients who want to speak to someone she has worked with.”

“I consulted Marjan prior to and during the integration of our third cat, Errol, into our family. We had two cats at that point, but felt that a third cat would be something that would benefit especially one of our resident cats who didn’t find the playmate she seemed to need in her very human-focused sister.

Marjan gave us very practical and helpful guidance throughout the whole process on how to prepare for the arrival of Errol as well as what to expect when he would meet his new sisters for the first time. She also gave us handy tools and techniques for dealing with the initial “teething problems” and potential behavioural issues that come with the integration of a new cat. Thankfully those initial problems remained very manageable thanks to the techniques she suggested and after a few days of hissing and growling Errol almost seamlessly integrated into the family.

We are incredibly grateful for Marjan’s help which we feel greatly contributed to the smooth integration of Errol. She made us feel a lot more confident and relaxed about the whole process. We knew what to expect which ensured we weren’t stressed even when some hissing and growling occurred at the start.

A big thanks to Marjan for her help and for making us feel like we could come to her for any behavioural issues with our cats and get very practical and sound advice. I certainly feel she has made us understand our cats and their needs and motives in a way we didn’t before!”
