The Animal Behavior Clinic at the Tufts Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine is searching for Siamese cat owners to participate in a research project on oral compulsive behavior. Dr. Nicholas Dodman is the director of the study. You may have heard of him from Animal Planet, Dateline, the Today Show or one of his several bestselling books. Study participation does not require a veterinary visit.

Specifically, we are still looking for Siamese kitties who do NOT exhibit oral compulsive behavior (in other words, controls for our project).
