Litterbox Lessons: Preventing Litterbox Issues

  • Tails from the city adoption and activity center (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Cats defecating and urinating outside the box is one of the most common behavioral issues among cats. Unfortunately, house-soiling is also a leading cause of relinquished or euthanized cats. Contrary to popular opinion, cats do not do that to punish or spite their housemates! Instead, feline house-soiling is due to either a medical problem and/or fear, anxiety, and stress. 

Join Tabitha Kucera RVT, CCBC, KPA-CTP at the Tails Adoption and Activity center as she discusses litterbox lessons, how you can prevent house-soiling, and what you can do to help if it is something you and your cat(s) are struggling with.

$5 per person. Payable at the door or via pre-registration.
