Kater im Gras

Welcome to my homepage. Living with cats is an amazing adventure - and often a mystery. You might be full of questions, because you just can't understand what your cat wants to tell you. There might even be serious trouble going on making life with your cat difficult. Or there are changes coming up, like a new member of the family, might it be two- or four-legged. Maybe you're just looking for ideas to make life with your best pal even better. Whatever it is, when it comes to you and your cat, I'm happy to lend a hand.

Being a behavioural biologist, I have always been interested in improving animal welfare. Since cats have been part of my life for more than 20 years, I combine scientific knowledge with personal experience on domestic (and wild) cats, zoo biology and the evaluation of welfare in animals.

I hold a PhD in zoology, as well as a certificate in animal psychology and behaviour consulting in cats and dogs. I have also worked in Australia for two years, so I'm fluent in English.

Cats and Dogs

You keep dogs and cats together or want to do this? Keeping both species doesn't work out smoothly for you? Being a certified dog psychologist, I can translate between the tow of them and assist you in relaxing their daily life.

Counseling in sickness and death

Your cat or dog is old-aged or very sick? You feel lost between veterinarian diagnosis and your own emotions? You would like somebody to talk to and help you with decisions. I can accompany you and your animal on this way.
