Mieshelle Nagelschneider Biography
Mieshelle Nagelschneider, C.A.T. Counselor, is a cat behaviorist and author of the science-based and scholarly cited cat behavior book, The Cat Whisperer (hardcover, Random House Publishing) along with co-author 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 Animal Planet and recently finished filming a cat behavior documentary for National Geographic. 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.
Nationally and internationally, Mieshelle is a frequent contributor and guest on T.V., radio, and publications, including Animal Planet, Fox, USA Today, 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: www.thecatbehaviorclinic.com
