More about our Guest Speaker, Marilyn Krieger

Marilyn Krieger, Certified Cat Behavior Consultant, owner of The Cat Coach (https://thecatcoach.com ),
is an internationally recognized cat behavior specialist and award-winning author. She has been offering
on-site and remote consultation sessions in the US as well as internationally since 2005. Marilyn works
directly with clients as well as through veterinarian referrals to help resolve cat behavior challenges.
Not surprisingly, she’s fascinated by the behaviors of large and small felids of all species. After
witnessing a puma being killed a few blocks from her home in the suburbs, her fascination with felid
behaviors expanded to include local mountain lions and bobcats. After the tragedy, she started
maintaining trail cameras, helping Bay Area Puma Project (https://bapp.org/ ) with studies and writing
about pumas, bobcats and other wildlife. Her focus is on how urbanization is affecting the apex
predators’ behaviors. Her wildlife articles can be read at: Urban Edge Wildlife
(https://urbanedgewildlife.org )

Marilyn is also an author and educator. Her book Naughty No More! (https://www.amazon.com/Naughty-No-More-Marilyn-Krieger/dp/1933958928) focuses on solving cat behavior issues through clicker training, environmental changes as well as other positive reinforcement techniques.

She gives presentations nationally as well as writes columns and articles for a variety of venues. She is also frequently interviewed for print and on-line publications. Additionally, Marilyn is a frequent guest on television and radio and has appeared, along with her Bengals and Savannah Cat on Animal Planet, CBS, ABC, KGO and other outlets.

Follow her on her Facebook business page (https://www.facebook.com/TheCatCoach/ ), for lively
discussions about all things Felid.
