Inappropriate elimination is actually inappropriate communication. ~ Dusty Rainbolt
Inappropriate elimination is the most vexing problem cat owners face, but there’s good news. Dr. Carlo Siracusa, chief of the animal behavior service at the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine, says, “Among behavior problems, housesoiling is the problem with the best prognosis if the owner is educated.”
Enter Cat Scene Investigator: Solve Your Cat’s Litter Box Mystery, the consummate inappropriate elimination guide. CSI approaches kitty crime scenes through the eyes of a detective to help determine your cat’s motive and the remedy.
