Jessica is the light at the end of cat trouble tunnel

"Jessica was so helpful to us when we adopted two male siblings. As we encountered behavioral issues, she was completely responsive, asking questions to assess the issues, and giving us solutions to try. She never overwhelmed me, but always gave me hope that we could resolve the issue. She gave advice explaining why we should or should not do specific things. She checked up on us to see how they were doing. Most of all, she never gave up and encouraged us not to give up on our boys. We have our into practice every bit of advice, and we are free of the issues that almost made us think of rejoining them. She is so patient, so knowledgeable and continues to show empathy and concern. I would highly recommend her."

I'm so thankful to cat lovers academy!


"I can't say enough about Cat Lovers' Academy! We adopted our kitty, Wizard, in March of 2020 and soon after also adopted a pup who we were told was cat friendly. Turns out he is, but his inclination to chase Wizard was high. After many months of doing everything I knew to do to try and desensitize my pup and get Wizard to come downstairs, I determined he just didn't have the confidence to socialize...but I knew he wanted to. I finally contacted Cat Lovers' academy and worked with Jessica to better understand Wizard and his fears, his needs and how I can start to build his confidence. Soon after working with her, and 10 long months after adopting our pup, Wizard started making his way downstairs to socialize. I am over the moon with all the help I was given and Wizard is living such a robust and confident life. He's like a whole new, much happier cat. Even better, because he's confident enough to come down, our pup is now desensitized and everyone is living in harmony. I'm so thankful to Cat Lovers' Academy and to Jessica and would highly recommend!!"
