Cat Behavior Clinic Unravels Puzzling Pet Mystery

The Cat Behavior Clinic has discovered reasons behind cats defecating outside the litterbox, solving a complex behavior that troubles cat owners.

Cat owners have long been troubled by certain behaviors, and Mieschelle Nagelschneider of The Cat Behavior Clinic has solved the perplexing issue of cats defecating outside their litter boxes. Through groundbreaking research at the clinic, the Harvard-trained animal behaviorist has discovered that the issue does not arise from the litter box itself, but from other factors. “Cats will defecate outside the litterbox for a number of complex reasons,” Mieschelle says. “Without a treatment plan and an in-depth consultation, animal caregivers will continue to be frustrated by this issue.” This puzzling mystery is related to the cat’s natural territorial behaviors, but includes other concerns like social tension between cats and even aversions to scents contained within popular brands of cat litter. Mieschelle’s research has led her to a multi-step solution called “The Nagelschneider Method”, and it is one that has received many favorable remarks from clients who have overcome litterbox issues using her valued advice.
