Tabitha Kucera is a Level 3 Fear Free and Low Stress Handling certified registered veterinary technician, a certified cat behavior consultant, and a Karen Pryor Academy Certified training partner. She owns Chirrups and Chatter cat and dog behavior consulting and training in Cleveland, Ohio andhas been working with cats and dogs for over 10 years, including a number of rescue organizations and small animal practices. Her work in these fields exposed her directly to the repeated occurrences of feline and canine euthanasia and rehoming due to behavioral issues. As a result, she quickly became dedicated to learning about the prevention, root causes and solutions to feline and canine behavioral concerns through continuing education, workshops, completing her low stress handling and fear free certifications, graduating from the Karen Pryor Academy and obtaining her KPA-CTP, and becoming a certified cat behavior consultant through the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants. She is currently a Fear Free certified speaker, serves as the co-chair of PPG’s feline division and the president of the Society of Veterinary Behavior Technicians, and serves on the board of The Together Initiative for Ohio’s Community Cats.
