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.
Our mama says we are both extremely finicky eaters! She is pretty frustrated.
She has fed us Natural Choice wet foods, Avoderm Cat/Kitten dry (chicken) food (Pixel will eat that), and Fancy Feast (we've tried many flavors). We've also had IAMS Chicken With Wild Rice. We tolerated that (badly) for awhile, but now she can't find it.
Our v-e-t (ooogh) is a diplomate DVM in kitty medicine, and only sees kitties. He told her that he wants us to eat mostly wet (canned) food, because the latest research says that is healthier for us, and more naturally replicates being a Real Cat. He ALSO told her he doesn't want us to have very much tuna, because of all the concerns about high mercury content (in BOTH kitty and human tuna, everywhere).
Well guess what?? ALL the flavors we like have tuna. We don't like anything with any kind of beef or chicken. We tolerate salmon and other fish less and less.
It's pretty much down to the Natural Choice foods (with tuna) or the Fancy Feast foods (with tuna, or at least with ocean fish -- and who knows what that means!)
Our mom is really frustrated. She puts out food, and we look at her like she has three heads (filled with air). She leaves it, and tells us she's not playing that game -- and 24 hours later it's sitting there dried up and crumbly.
We're winning!! (Except maybe not. Because we keep telling her we Want SOMETHING ELSE!)
Please, please help our mama -- if you have any ideas. Thanks.
