Cat Behavior Problems with Dr. Christine Calder

In this episode of The Woof Meow Show from February 13th, 2021, Don talks with veterinary behaviorist Dr. Christine Calder from Calder Veterinary Behavior Services about common behavioral problems with cats. The show starts with a discussion of what constitutes normal cat behavior and how providing cats with a means to express those normal behaviors helps prevent behavior problems. Then we move on to the most common behavioral issue reported by cat parents; inappropriate urination and defecation. Dr. Calder reviews the causes and triggers of this behavior, how it is diagnosed and how it is treated.  Next, we address feline aggression towards other cats, other pets, and people. Lastly, we review some of the less common behavioral concerns: predatory behavior, wool sucking, and night yowling. If you want to better understand your cat’s behavior, you will not want to miss this show.
