Featured in the New York Times, Mieshelle Nagelschneider, C.A.T Counselor, is a Harvard-trained, cat behaviorist and author of the first science-based and scholarly cited cat behavior book for cat owners, The Cat Whisperer (hardcover, Random House Publishing along with co-writer, Cameron Powell). Her passion and curiosity about cats along with her study in animal behavior, continues to put her at the forefront of cat behavior knowledge. Studying cat behavior for over two decades with her most recent study of animal behavior at Harvard University, has enabled her to offer cat owners what they haven't been able to find -- behavior advice that isn't obsolete, cookie cutter, or reinvents the wheel.
Mieshelle has guest starred as The Cat Whisperer on The Today Show, National Geographic, NBC, Dateline, MTV, Animal Planet and recently finished filming a cat behavior documentary for Nat Geo Wild. She was the International Cat Behavior Expert for Whiskas traveling the globe with the mission to elevate the status of the cat along with the Animal Welfare League and TICA. She has lectured internationally at SPCA veterinary behavior conferences on common behavior issues and a cat welfarist and guest speaker as The Cat Whisperer nationally for Best Friends Animal Society and Stray Cat Alliance in L.A. and many other cat shelters.
Nationally and internationally, Mieshelle is a frequent contributor and guest on T.V., radio, and publications, including Animal Planet, The Today Show, National Geographic, NBC Dateline, Modern Cat magazine, Fox, USA Today, Parade, the New York Times, The Dodo, The Circle, The Sunrise Show, Martha Stewart Living Radio, Zoo Peeps, This Wildlife, New York Post, Cat Fancy Magazine, Salon.com, New Republic, Feline Wellness, Petside.com, Cat Channel, The Daily Cat, and Pets Magazine.
In addition to her important platforms like anti-declawing and elevating the status of the black cat, Mieshelle believes that saving millions of cats from euthanasia each year begins with cat owners understanding and respecting the natural instincts of their domestic cat and sound behavior advice in solving behavior issues.
Mieshelle opened the doors to The Cat Behavior Clinic, LLC, in 1999 where she and licensed veterinarian Dr. James Shultz conduct behavior consultations worldwide. Visit the clinic website at: http://www.thecatbehaviorclinic.com/
