She is a cat behaviorist and life-long cat lover, with extensive experience with multiple cat homes.
Her Cat Behavior Expert knowledge have helped thousands of people to better understand their cat companions, and find solutions to issues that might otherwise cause a cat to be surrendered to a rescue or shelter. Rita has helped many people, including some well-known celebrities, to better understand the feline world. Now, she brings her knowledge exclusively to YOU, here on her website and inside the Clubhouse.

Hi Rita, So everything has been going great. We had a small set back last night. Bruce and LuLu are okay together in the living room/kitchen area, if they move to the back of the house they start fighting.
(Rita’s Note: We reacquainted the cats one area of the house at a time, the back of the house is the next area to be conquered). Play time and feeding are going well and Lulu is finding comfort in the cat carrier.
Happy Cat Parent
“Rita, I was just talking about you the other day. I work for the company that makes the show ‘My Cat From Hell.’ When we have people try out for the show and do not make it, we give them your information. Hopefully some of those cases have reached out for help!
Bruce and Lulu are great! They are back to being inseparable and have not had any more fights. I am very thankful for everything you did to get them back to normal.”
Supervising Cast Director “My Cat From Hell” Jackson Galaxy
We are making some progress. We’ve have had two pee free days and we’re hoping it keeps up. We’ve been spending a lot of time playing with the cats. Roxy has been in the kitchen more so we’ve been playing there. While playing, she can get very close to the other cats without incident. When we’re not playing, there’s still some hissing and spitting, but it is getting better. We appreciate your help!
