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, www.catster.com 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.
Weight loss needed for Multi-Cat Home
My sister Alexis is only 11 months old and has gained lots of weight the last 3 months. She is very stressed out due to our moving and has also been skittish since then, she is eating for comfort. Mom gives all 4 of us every morning and night 1/2 can (the little cans) each of ProPlan wet food. She keeps out ProPlan Weight Management Dry all day. It seems Alexis is always chowing down on it so Mom started only putting it during certain times a day but this is not working. When she does put it down, Lexie gorges on it. The rest of us are not happy that the dry is not there all day and we are not overweight like she is. Charlotte is actually 1/2 the size of Lexie and they are from the same litter!
Mom is thinking a food change might help, another light dry food maybe one that will fill her up more (like high protein or something?). What would be the best dry food for a situation like this? Mom is so worried that Lexie will explode one day!
