|Semiochemical messages of fear or peace? Clinical trial for cats that do not get along. Cats earn $50.Last chance to join. Please share.
Cats communicate with each other by leaving semiochemical messages called pheromones in the environment which other cats “read” in much the same way people get information by reading a written message. What if we could speak cat? What if we could write a “cat message” in cat language and send it to the cats and change their behavior?
In this trial, the effectiveness of a pheromone message being utilized to promote amicable interactions will be evaluated. Cats communicate fear and distress signals and leave these messages in the environment which likely perpetuates the feline hostilities. Cats naturally are socially independent and lack the inherent skills to reconcile once hostilities have tainted feline friendships.
Since March, 2014 over 100 households have participated in a clinical trial on “Improvement of Aggression Between Housemate Cats”. The enrollment phase will close on July 29th.
The final enrollment opportunities:
July 22nd Ann Arbor Animal Hospital – Ann Arbor, MI 2pm or 6pm
July 29th Oakland Veterinary Referral Services - Bloomfield Hills, MI 2pm or 6pm
Volunteers only attend one meeting and they must be prequalified. Interested volunteers should contact Theresa DePorter by email TheresaDVM@aol.com or call Oakland Veterinary Referral Services at 248-334-6877. Please share the study flyer at (www.OVRS.com).
