DENVER/June 18, 2022 – Cat behavior can be both mystifying and frustrating to owners and veterinarians alike. In the latest episode of Morris Animal Foundation’s Fresh Scoop podcast, available now for streaming and download, host Dr. Kelly Diehl, the Foundation’s Senior Director of Science and Communication, interviews Dr. Kristyn Vitale. Dr. Vitale is an assistant professor of animal health and behavior at Unity College and a feline behavior expert.
The pair discuss how cat owners and veterinarians misinterpret normal feline behaviors as problematic, and Dr. Vitale offers solutions and strategies to address these needs in positive ways that benefit both cats and their caretakers. House soiling, scratching and counter-surfing are among the many topics covered in the episode.
Fresh Scoop is Morris Animal Foundation’s monthly veterinary science podcast designed to appeal to practicing veterinarians, veterinary technicians and students, as well as animal-loving science geeks. Episodes are available on iTunes, Spotify, Google Podcasts and Stitcher, as well as the Foundation’s podcast page.
