Dear Catster reader,

Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Catster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.

Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Catster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.

Catster magazine, and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.

Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found elsewhere within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.

Please help my mom out, Caster kitties!! Recently, I've been knocking my food dish over and loving the fact that my food just sits all over the floor. I used to eat it off the floor after doing this.. but I don't anymore. I just like to flip my food dish over and watch it lay there. My mom gets upset. She places it all back in my bowl, just so I can do it again 30 mins later. I even knock over my little sisters food bowl too. I will sniff at it, but I refuse to eat it. My mom feeds us Whiska's. I've always loved Whiska's. Lately, my mom thinks I hate it and I don't want to eat it. My mom is also getting angry about my food fight, because ants get inside the apartment everytime I knock my bowl(s) over. Please help my mom!!!

    Have you tried a bowl with the non-skip grips on the bottom? I used to knock my water over all the time, so my Mommy got me a big auto-waterer that I can\'t tip over. Maybe something like that would work for you?

    Isn't it great how easy it is to train humans?! I mean, you've already trained your mom to put your food back in the dish so you can knock it over again. You need to be careful though. She might get the idea that you are playing with your food because you aren't hungry. She could even decide to take your food away when you stop eating and start playing with it. That would ruin your whole game, wouldn't it?

    My mom did that last night! I was so mad at her! I spilled all the food on the floor and my mom told me that I don't need the bowls. So, she hid the bowls and left my food on the floor. My mom told me to eat off the floor since I thought it belonged there. She's no fun!
