A talk entitled Thinking Outside the Box, dealing with feline litter-box problems, will be addressed at Thinking Outside the Box. Litter-box avoidance is one of the most common issues that cat “parents” address. Such behavior may result from medical issues, stress, a change in environment…or a combination of factors. Vero Beach veterinarian and cat expert Suzanne Gambella will discuss ways to end “out of the box” accidents and encourage “in the box” behavior.
