Jane Ehrlic-Cat Behaviorist

Jane Ehrlic-Cat Behaviorist



"Jane recently joined Az Pet Professionals and we are so proud to have her as an official member of our group! Working in the Veterinary Field I see too many, or should I say.... too few, cats come in to the clinic. Why? Behavior problems. Clients unable to get their cats into their crates for the ride is one of the biggest reasons. But wait! There are more. We often hear about "Those other cats at home" that don't come to see us, and clients are struggling with many behavior problems that are going un-addressed. We recommend that they seek the advice and expertise from Jane, as so many of these behavior problems can be corrected and kitty can live happily ever after in their home, rather than end up unwanted, deemed "Problem Cat" at the pound. If you are a reader who owns a "Problem Cat," please continue reading. Jane is an expert in her field. You will want to contact her to find out how she can help you and your cats live in harmony!"

JANE EHRLICH went to Washington University in St. Louis, where she studied under Dr. Michael Fox, arguably the first internationally-renowned ethologist and expert in canine and feline behavior. EHRLICH later moved to London for her Ph.D., and spent over 20 years volunteering as clinic assistant and feline behavior counselor with the North London branch of the RSPCA.

Upon her return to her hometown of Phoenix, she worked in animal shelters, and started her own business, Cattitude Feline Behavior. She has remained current in her field, between journals, conference transcripts, and conferences both in Britain and in the US. In April she will be attending the IAABC's feline behavior conference in Atlanta.

Ehrlich has appeared in press (presently the ‘cat expert’ contributor in the AZ Republic ‘Ask the Pet Editor’ Sunday column), on radio and TV, and gives talks to shelters, rescues and vet tech colleges. She recently did a webinar for Pet Professionals Guild, and has achieved her Associate Certification from the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants.

Dealing with clients worldwide, Ehrlich works with issues such as spraying, inappropriate soiling, aggression, introducing new pets--and babies--to resident cats, scratching, you name it.

Ehrlich’s had more than 27 years’ experience working with cats and their behavior. She spent over 20 years as clinical assistant and behavior adviser at the RSPCA in North London. Ehrlich set up Cattitude Feline Behavior in Phoenix several years ago, and is the only feline behaviorist in AZ with so many years’ experience, specifically, in feline behavior.

She is presently owned by three of her own kittens, all rescues, from Grace, an apricot Oriental brought back from England, Bouvier (she looks like Jackie Kennedy), a formerly-feral calico, and Lottie, a tortie sorta-Oriental. She also lovingly attends to two strays, macho Benny and stunning tuxedo Frankie.

For more information on her background and services, her website is you can also find her business Facebook page under Cattitude Behavior.

Okay, we all live in Arizona because the weather is almost perfect, the sun is almost always shining, the golf courses are luscious, there are multiple and beautiful wide open spaces and endless hiking trails! 

Surprisingly enough these are also places where some “not so delightful” inhabitants hang out in our state! You've heard the news this past week...... Snakes bites are on the rise!! Again! 
Here are a few simple tips to help keep you safe.

If you hike: 
 • Tap ahead of you with a walking stick before entering an area where you can't see your feet. Snakes will try to avoid you if given enough warning. • When hiking in an area known to have snakes, wear long pants and boots if possible
 • Consider purchasing a snake kit Avoid rock piles or tall green grass/bushes where snakes like to rest. 

About 150 people in Arizona are bitten every year. 
Some of Arizona’s rattlesnakes can also be lethal. 

Scottsdale is notorious for having snakebites and s…

National Adopt a dog month  And National Adopt a Shelter dog month

Are you thinking about adopting a dog? Has the thought crossed your mind in the past few months? If so, that's great! This is the perfect month for you to get down to business and do just that!

You might be looking simply for a companion, maybe a hiking pal, a friend for your grandparents or parents, how about an agility hopeful, or just a happy, warm face to welcome you home each day? Then this might just be the perfect timing!

Across the valley there are numerous places that you can choose from to adopt a dog. Many Shelters are full and have weekend discounts so they can open up space for new dogs. Unfortunately some will be placed on the E-List almost immediately due to its breed, temperament or health.

A dog that is on the "E-List" (to be euthanized) is commonly a dog that might have growled when captured or put into a kennel, but it doesn't necessarily mean they are aggressive.

They were SCARED.
