Behavior correction

Cats are mysterious creatures with individual quirks. Sun Cities 4 Paws provides the following information to help you better understand feline behavior and provide the best possible care for your cat. Please use this information to supplement advice from your veterinarian. If you notice any change in your cat’s behavior, consult with your veterinarian first to exclude a physical ailment as the reason for the behavior change.
