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.

    My mommy sobbed and sobbed and really wants to go help. She doesn\'t know how she\'d stand being without daddy, though...and he doesn\'t know how he\'d stand being without her. I heard them talking. It\'s just horrible...all those animals..... I could hear mommy sobbing and sometimes it sounded like she was half laughing/half sobbing with joy. So there must\'ve been some happy parts. She was making lots of upset noises and kept calling for daddy. *sigh*

    Bubba Gump, that's some good advice. Mommy went and grabbed a roll of toilet paper.
