With over a decade of experience working for the San Francisco SPCA as a specialist in cat behavior, intake and adoption, Daniel brings a breadth of knowledge and a compassionate approach to his clients, sharing what he has learned on the front lines of animal welfare.

“Unraveling the mysteries behind the feline message has always fascinated me. I think people misunderstand just how complex feline emotions and body language can be. You literally have to stop yourself from projecting your own feelings on to your cat. Never take it personally! It’s not always about YOU!”

“Once you slow down and pay attention to what’s happening “in the now”, you can understand what cats are trying to communicate. Separating your own expectations from the best interest of a cat is a challenge. We are only human, after all! I can help you read the writing on the wall. However, I may have to use a black light to help you see it.”

Originally from New Jersey, Daniel “DQ” Quagliozzi resides in San Francisco, where he has been living the “California Dream”, doing what he loves by his own rules. He shares his private time with his mischievous stubby-legged Siamese cat, Cubby.

He has taught cat behavior seminars for the San Francisco Disaster Animal Response Team, as well as monthly classes on feline body language, aggression and fear for the cat volunteers of the San Francisco SPCA

Daniel has been featured in the San Francisco Chronicle,  San Francisco Magazine and SFWEEKLY.

You can hear DQ dishing out behavior advice on KGO Radio as a regular guest on the Maureen Langan show and as a cat expert on KOIT Radio.

Go, Cat, Go is a Bay Area A List winner for Best Pet Training in 2014, 2015, 2016 & 2017



  1. Daniel, I stumbled on your site by following a link in an article a friend sent me. Welcome to the age of digital discoveries. Love what you do. Congratulations on creating a strong entrepreneurial presence for yourself with a valuable service. Are you familiar with marketing maven, Jay Abraham and his concept of achieving preeminence in the marketplace? I think that’s what you’re doing. Way to go!

    Wait, do you have cat tatoos!?!?!

  3. Leslie Swallow says:

    Please contact us. We tried one behaviorist for our i’m going four cat problem. Right now it means keeping the 12-year-old power butch separate from the two teenagers. We are ready to try another re-introduction.

  4. Diane Smith says:

    Daniel, you helped me adopt a “hard to place” cat from the SPCA 7 years ago. She had been “returned” several times before I met her. Thanks to you and your very sage advice the day I brought her home (and afterwards via email), ours was a great success story and we have been best pals ever since. I have always considered you a Cat Whisperer and I’m SO excited to hear about Go Cat Go. Anytime you have a potential client who needs a testimonial, send them my way because Pebbles The Cat and I are your biggest fans!
