Remember Housecat Housecall? No? It was a television show on the Animal Planet channel that ran from 2008 to 2010. On the show, celebrity veterinarian Dr. Katrina Warren visited homes and counseled cat parents on how to solve their cat behavior problems.
Sometimes, if your cat has a behavior problem, it's often difficult to find the true source of the issue, which may be the key to solving the problem.
Without that elusive source, problems can seem nearly impossible to solve.
With the right information and retraining, however, many cat behavior problems can be solved. That retraining often applies to both you and your cat.
Often, part of the problem is you feel alone and can't find good answers.
But what if you could get some personal one on two (you and your cat) coaching from an expert?
That was the premise of this show. If you were selected, a celebrity veterinarian would visit your home and work with you and your cat.
With the help of the show's mentors, Dr. Karen Sueda and Dr. Rich Goldstein, veterinarian ("as seen on Australian TV") Dr. Katrina Warren was the celebrity vet doing the consultations for the show. For the chosen cat owners, she acted as a cat behaviorist/pet psychologist and developed plans to fix the issues.
She often suggested mentally stimulating your cat by leaving "surprise" treats around the house for your cat to find, and recommended products like Feliway for nervous or fearful cats.
