About Me

Most recently I've worked as the Feline Behavior Coordinator at one of the largest animal shelters in the USA, the Animal Care Centers of NYC where no animal is euthanized for space. Prior, I spent 8 years with the APSCA in feline behavior and the Field Investigation and Response Team, and I've been working with cats since 2002. Offline I've given 100's of behavior consults to members of the public who've had a cat behavior problem. With compassion, I help people and their cats. I'm Fear Free certified, see fearfreepets.com.

I've been on eventbrite.com answering behavior questions about people's cats. Sonali, the founder of Petminded.co said, "Stephen hosted two cat webinars for the Petminded Community in May 2020. These live sessions had from 80-100 people and received tremendous feedback. I would highly recommend Stephen for any cat behavior related issues - you don't want to miss an opportunity to get his expertise!"

I'm currently a behavior consultant with:

  • St. Marks Veterinary Hospital, NYC
  • Astoria Veterinary Group, NYC
  • Ready For Rescue, NYC
  • Wisconsin Humane Society
  • The Humane Society of Memphis and Shelby Country, Memphis, TN.


And I'm the author of the webinar, Decoding the Mysteries of Cats, or Why Cats Do What They Do, which I give to the public as well as to shelters, rescues and vet practices. Ask me about giving it to your public library, vet practice or company.
