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.
Hi kitties, mom was in her first ever fender-bender last night and wanted to pass along a safety tip to all of you.
Be sure to buckle up if you are riding in the car. Mom always loops the seatbelt through the handle of our carriers.
The reason for this is because in collisions often there is damage from things flying around inside the car. Not only could an airborne cat carrier knock a human unconscious but it could knock a kitty right through the windshield. If you're buckeled in, you'll only go as far as the seatbelt will allow. The same is true for your canine sisters and brothers. Pets can get whiplash just like humans, however they are much harder to treat(or even diagnose).
Be careful out there, there's a lot of crazy drivers.
