If you are struggling with behaviour issues of your cat, Alice can support you. Alice Guarda I Gatti (literally, “Alice Watches The Cats”, from a popular Italian song) is a consulting service on cat behaviour and feline well-being based in Como and founded by Alice Catalani, a SIUA-certified human-cat relationship.

bocconcino (1)Alice offers both home, in-person and virtual consultations in Italian and English to cat owners who wish to better understand their feline friends, in critical situations or simply to set up a happy and fulfilling coexistence, especially in the pre- and post-adoption phases.

With an approach based on observation, empathic listening, behavioral science knowledge and intuition, Alice offers personalised plans for cats and their humans, targeting a variety of issues and situations, such as:

  • house soiling (urinating and/or defecating)
  • indoor urine-spraying  
  • cat-to-cat and cat-to-human aggression
  • cat introductions 
  • moving house / vet visits
  • fearful behaviour
  • overgrooming or other compulsive behaviours
  • excessive vocalisation

The consultation with Alice is not intended as a medical diagnosis and is not a replacement for veterinary care, which is always recommended as soon as a behaviour problem arises.

Once medical causes have been ruled out, Alice will provide cat owners with custom and species-appropriate advice to prevent or resolve behavior issues, guiding humans towards a healthy and harmonious relationship with their cats and (maybe) inspiring them to look at the world through their eyes.
