If you are struggling with cat(s) behavioral issues, I definitely recommend reaching out to DQ! One of our cats began attacking the other (after 5 years as extremely loving siblings) and we didn't know what to do. We had to keep them in separate rooms and couldn't leave the house for more than a few hours at a time. After a session with DQ, we began to implement his recommendations (patience is key). We were also able to reach out to him for words of encouragement, share some progress videos and ask for feedback, etc. After 2 to 3 months, we were finally back to normal and are happy to report our cats snuggle every night again. We are so happy! Thank you DQ!

  DQ has a great, unique perspective on kitty behavior and boundaries. I have had the pleasure of working with him on two separate occasions, and I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for information on how to integrate a new kitty into your home. DQ was very honest with me about possible limitations, but also wonderfully eye-opening in terms of getting me to see things from my kitties' perspective. He also has a delightful sense of humor. Rates are reasonable!

  We implemented everything that Daniel suggested. We were at a loss because nothing we were doing was working. We had made assumptions about what the issue was and we were able to get an outside perspective and learn what was really not working for our cat. It's been over a month now and it is like we have a whole new cat. Momo is thriving, he is so much happier, spends more time with us, and is clearly feeling safer. We feel lucky that we get to know our cat on a deeper level thanks to Daniel. We appreciate all of the guidance and would recommend Daniel a million times over!!

  DQ is absolutely a miracle worker. And this review is long overdue! My kitten was having litter box issues. Essentially she knew how to use her litter box but she was also urinating on furniture and elsewhere. I met with DQ on Zoom and his advice was spot on. I made the changes he suggested, and DQ followed up with me to see how my kitten was doing. My cat has not had any problems since I made the changes and she's now one year old. DQ is a gem, and I'm so thankful we have this cat whisperer.

  We did an online consultation and it was VERy helpful. DQ gave us his full attention, gave us lots of tips and suggestions and helps us regain control of our cats/home situation. We now have 3 kitties who all get along. I recommend DQ as your cat whisperer!!

  I'm so thankful for DQ for helping my housemates and me with the introduction of our cats. As new cat owners, we have so many questions and worries on whether we are doing the steps right in introducing older cats, but DQ was there with solid information to guide us in the right direction, as well as giving emotional advice on how it's okay to make mistakes. Whether it was a consultation, or a quick question through email DQ Was responsive and gave so much insight on cat behavior. I would definitely go to him again if my partner and I ever see a future with more kitties

  I just finished my meeting with Daniel and he gave me solid advice on my cats redirected aggression. I just needed some reassurance as I already did research myself, but he was still able to provide me with more advice that I didn't think about previously. He was also super nice, funny, and knew a lot about cats! I'll be booking with him again if I need anything else vs going to Google lol

  I am so happy we came here for help with our 6 month old kitten, Arti. We are new cat parents so this meeting was so helpful and informative to better understand our cat's behavior (anxiety, hissing, stranger danger) and ways we can work with it. We were also able to use the advice to the next level and just adopted another kitten! Arti and his brother are getting along great now too and a lot of our anxieties are eased since we understand more about our cat, his behavior, anxiety, and needs. Thank you for all of the tips and resources!

  DQ has helped us & our kitty Burtis so much. Burtis was an outdoor stray we've been trying to bring in for about 5 years. He got sick a couple months ago and his vet recommended that he be indoor only.  He's about 8-10 and lived outdoor only his whole life. It's a lot to adjust to for him and for us. DQ has been able to help us understand what Burtis needs and how he may be thinking. He's helped us make sure that Burtis' indoor world is interesting and comforting. He's not only helped Burtis but helped us humans too (I'm a massive worrier & helicopter cat parent haha). We still have work to do & adjusting to do, but DQ's help has been invaluable. His system for appointments & payments is so easy to use.  Worth every penny! Will use again for sure. He is kind, very knowledgeable & we had a wonderful experience. Thank you DQ! Note: this is all through Zoom, so you don't need to be in the Bay Area to benefit!

  We recently adopted a kitty and we were having issues with him whining at our bedroom door at 4am every morning, sometimes even earlier. My boyfriend and I are new cat parents so we had no idea how to stop this and we were so frustrated (and tired). I was worried that the consultation wouldn't be as helpful without having an actual in-home visit. We talked to DQ for 30 minutes and he was super helpful not only with this issue but also helping us to understand our kitty's motivations and behaviors. He suggested that we find a room to have the kitty sleep in at night. Unfortunately, the only room available was the guest bathroom. I was worried about it being small and not very cozy but we put his kitty bed and toys in there and he's been sleeping in it ever since. Not only is he not crying at our door in the morning, but we also don't have to worry about him getting into things over night or causing trouble. While this change sounds small, it has literally improved our lives dramatically. I actually think our kitten likes having his own little space, he never cries when we put him in there at night. This consultation was the best $60 I have ever spent. I would highly recommend DQ's services if you are having cat issues.

  We hired GoCatGo for a consultation w.r.t. our very shy cat. It was not an extreme case but we hoped to build on his professional opinion and to get some custom tips during a house visit. We were happy with the consultation and valued his useful tips.

  DQ has a calming effect on both cats and people!  He was very encouraging with my goal of introducing a new kitten to my territorial incumbent cat, and he had lots of helpful suggestions in preparing for it and for life afterwards. He also explained my role as house mama to both, and that it may be necessary for me to give the two furballs some time with me not in the immediate picture. I've tried this, and amazingly, the incumbent cat's growls and hissing were replaced by by icy silence and a hint of curiosity. So it's promising!  Thanks Daniel!

  We had a great conversation with DQ and took away logical and reasonable next steps to help make our Maine Coone and Bengal live more in harmony with each other. As many others have said, DQ allows you to think from a cat point of view. We've noticed great improvement post his visit and would highly recommend him. Just remember, he doesn't fix the situation, he gives you the tools to do it yourself.

  I have been following DQ on social media for a while.  We got an adorable 8 month old kitty (Winston) that was acting insane (as kittens do) and bothering our other cat, Lily, relentlessly. Winston wasn't a cat with terrible problems but we wanted to make sure we were doing the right things, early on in his life so that we wouldn't have to worry about taking away bad habits.

We had DQ come to our house in Richmond to see Winston and Lily.  DQ  showed us ways to "catify" our place without buying a bunch of stuff, and rather just moving things around.  We moved out cat tree, next to some existing shelves and it gives the cats a view of a large part of the house.  Its one the kitties favorite places now!  DQ also recommended the best toys that both cats love and participate in playing with.  Winston is totally engaged which takes his aggression away from Lily. Things have definitely improved since DQ's visit.

DQ knows his stuff and explains the cat personality so well, you really start to understand life from a feline point of view.  Its so much easier once you realize that cats live in the moment and don't act out with revenge, spite or any other human emotion we tend to attribute to them. They are just cats and they do whatever they feel.

  DQ is fantastic, we are so glad to have worked with him. We have a Bengal who is an amazing and very challenging cat. He has always been very vocal, but when my boyfriend and I moved in together it got a lot worse. DQ came to our house and made some suggestions that involved giving this very active cat the stimulation he needs to stay happier. We have definitely seen an improvement and our lives are more mellow.

DQ is very easy to work with and has great communication skills and empathy. We had seen another cat behaviorist who was very difficult to work with and gave us a lot of suggestions that were not realistic for our lifestyle. We were very happy to find that DQ is so personable and was able to work with us in a way that we feel fits us much better. He is also very responsive to email and reliable. Look no further, DQ is the best!

  It was a pleasure to work with Daniel! My cat displayed some misplaced aggressive behavior to my boyfriend last summer (stalking, and pouncing his ankles, biting) and we didn't know the best way to handle a smooth re-introduction.

Daniel came over within a week of our first email exchange and gave me so many great tips to keep my active and anxiety-prone cat happy and a step by step plan of what to do to reintroduce my boyfriend and cat.

We have been following Daniel's advice for the past two months and so far it has been going very well. My cat and boyfriend, while not best friends, have been getting along well and without any aggressive incidents.

The thirty minute home visit from Daniel was so illuminating and made me realize how little I knew about reading my cat's moods and behavior. I now feel more confident as a cat owner to recognize and understand my cat's behavior and know when he might be getting over stimulated, and what to do in that situation.

If you are having kitty trouble, definitely give Daniel a call! Daniel is there to support you and ease your cat woes.

  DQ was so helpful in providing practical suggestions we could use with our cat, Wilson. We have seen great progress in his behavior since implementing the practices and rituals that DQ showed us.

thumb Jen G.

  Daniel was fantastic. Truth be told, our little Scottish Fold, Wallace, wasn't having any MAJOR behavioral issues. However, there were a few things that we wanted to address. Sure enough, Daniel gave us a MUCH better understanding of Wallace's behavior, including insight into some of OUR bad habits...things we wouldn't have known without his insight. Since Daniel visited, things with Wallace have really improved, and we feel like we understand our kitten much better. Thank you Daniel!

thumb Ryan K.

  Daniel was super nice however I had already tried many suggestions I had found doing my own research and he didn't have much more to add. My problem is still not resolved.  I understand cat behavior consulting is not an exact science, but I am disappointed I didn't get much value out of my consultation and follow up emails.

  I'd been a fan of go cat go on Instagram for awhile, though I'd never needed his services. When we moved to a new place, our formerly feral cat couldn't get back in the litterbox routine and was suddenly making a mess of the joint. I didn't know what to do! I scheduled an appointment, and in the meantime, Daniel gave me some tactics to try. Well, it worked! A bigger pan and new litter was all we needed. I canceled my appt, but not without offering to pay for his time and advice, but Daniel wouldn't take it! Couldn't have been more classy (or helpful). Highly recommend!
