Cat Training And Behavior Solutions Arrive In Westchester
New Company’s Mission Is to Help Troubled Cats and Their Owners
Cats are the most popular companion animal in the United States. A survey by the American Pet Products Association (APPA) in 2012 showed that there are more than 95 million owned cats, versus 83 million owned dogs, and that 55 percent of cat owners have two or more cats.

Our solutions are designed not only to solve or minimize behavior problems in cats, but also to improve the bond between cats and their guardians. Everyone wins.”
