Cat Behavior Consultant

Have you ever stared into cat’s eyes and wondered what’s going on in that head of theirs?   I sure have!  I’ve wondered things like “What are you so smug about?” “Why do you keep judging me?” and “Why am I putting all of my emotional baggage on this animal?”.  Has all of that wondering still not stopped your cat from being a furry psychopath?  Well today’s guest is here to help!  Daniel  "DQ"  Quagliozzi is a cat behavior consultant.  Seriously.  And he’s here to tell us what’s wrong with our cats, what’s wrong with us, and if it’s really possible for us to coexist.
