Jennifer Catpurr works with cats and their parents to create a more harmonious feline-human world. This includes teaching behavior modification training, environmental enrichment, proper playtime, body language techniques, and emotional support.
Jennifer earned a Master of Public Administration from the University of South Florida. After completing her MPA, friends and acquaintances increasingly solicited her expertise on cat behavior and care. She determined that her lifelong love of cats could become a career on its own. This spurred her to further her study of cat behavior, and Jennifer Catpurr was born. She was assisted in the learning process by her cat, Whiskey, whom you can find in all of her training videos.
Outside of private cat behavior consultations, Jennifer is the go-to cat behavior consultant for St. Francis Society Animal Rescue in Tampa. She conducted presentations on low-stress handling and common cat behavior solutions to all five Tampa Bay Vets hospitals in 2019. She is a member of the Pet Professional Guild, which focuses on results-based, science-based force-free training. One of her cat training videos was featured in the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants Fall 2017 Journal. She was interviewed for an article on the Chewy.com blog and appeared in a Spring 2018 national commercial for Chewy. She taught clicker training classes at Tampa Bay KittyCon and Manatee County Animal Services. Most recently, she was a guest speaker at Snowcats in Denver, December 2019. You may have even heard her cat training advice on the radio as a guest on 970 WFLA's AM Tampa Bay.
