My three cats help me to provide a welcoming and calming environment for my clients.
Lily (cat on left) is the youngest, friendliest and most playful. Like most cats, she naps a lot, but she won’t mind waking up at any time to play with you or be petted.
Maggie (cat on right) is also very friendly. She’s usually up for playing and petting, and always up for a treat. She’s also an escape artist. She’s usually hanging out by the door, waiting for someone to give her an opportunity to get out into the wild, so you have to be careful when coming in.
Sterman (left) is named after the founder of neurofeedback, Barry Sterman, PhD, who told me he was honored and touched to have a cat named after him. Dr. Sterman’s first neurofeedback research study was with cats. Sterman is an indoor/outdoor cat. He, unlike Maggie, gets to go out because he howls incessantly if I don’t let him out when he wants, If he sees you when he is outside, he will most likely roll over for a belly rub. He has a history of juvenile delinquency, which I’ll tell you about some time. When he’s home, he’s usually sleeping, but he won’t mind if you wake him up for some petting or some treats.
