At Fundamentally Feline the focus is to address all aspects of a cat's behavior that can be improved upon to help both cats and humans live more harmoniously together. Client education is the foundation of these consultations. We offer consults for cat behavior problems all over the world. Video submission of the home environment will be requested to help assess the space and environmental resources being offered. Additionally, medicating consultations are also available to help clients overcome, or get ahead of, medicating challenges. These consults are offered live via Zoom. Helping clients better understand their cats, what they need, and how to best provide for those needs, makes for a happier cat and a better educated pet parent.
How do the consults work?
What people say about us
About 6-7 years ago, I consulted with Ingrid about my then 2.5-year-old aggressive, anxious, hot mess calico, Maybelline. She would go through aggressive episodes in which she didn’t want anyone around her, including me. Her eyes would dilate, and you could tell in the moment she had no idea who I was. Maybelline is almost 9 now, she’s still a hot mess and she will always be “special”, but she and I have come a long way. Any time we go through a major transition (moving, adding a new pet to the family), I look to the Fundamentally Feline website for advice on how to make things easier for her and it works. She has taught me more about cats than any cat I’ve ever had. Read more “Spicy lady-tamed!”

Adventures in Elimination!
When I filled out Ingrid’s questionnaire, I actually felt relieved that someone would want to know so many different things about my cats. It was a breath of fresh air to have a new set of eyes. For two cats and one human in a tiny apartment in DC, it feels like we’re living a much bigger life now. Thanks Ingrid!!! Read more “Adventures in Elimination!”

Nora and Nellie – friends again!
Ingrid was incredibly understanding and sympathetic, and gave me some new tricks to try when I really thought I had exhausted all the possibilities. Not only did she give me hope, she also helped me relax a little about it all, and I really think my cats felt that and responded accordingly.I learned a lot from Ingrid’s expert advice and am eternally grateful for her support as the work paid off and after a few more months we are all back together again, thankfully!
