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.

Cheers,
Catster

    i went to his myspace for a sec; he\'s obviously a sick little SOB; did it say his grandfather is ossie davis? wasn\'t he the really progressive political actor married to rubie dee, who is also very progressive? maybe we could contact her? does anyone know if i\'m right? i can\'t bring myself to go see the video... anyone, it you have the addresses or phone numbers we can use, please post them. you know someone (not me...) should write a book called \"it\'s only an animal\" about how ALL serial killers begin with animals. i\'m not saying this kid will become a serial killer, but anyone who can\'t inflict pain on a sentient being that suffers, is dangerous TO ALL. the FBI has been doing work on the link between animal abuse and violence towards humans for DECADES. can you imagine any girl wanting to be linked with this *ssh*l*. (is it okay for me to do that?)

    Is there a link to "What you don't know..."? I looked but couldn't find such a video. What a sick child. I hope they locate him and get him professional help.

    you know, this IS a part of the problem, and Mia is right. if this guy is not apprehended and dealt with, and frankly i doubt he will be, he will taunt those of us who are offended with even worse stuff. outrage has its place, but these creeps feed off of it and want to throw even worse in our faces. and there may be worse he will not tell us about. hate to be a buzzkill with this info, but meowmy worked in psychiatric nursing and found out about the world in ways she wished she hadn\'t. and don\'t count on youtube or any of those people doing anything about it if they think they can make money off of it. sometimes the world just sucks....

    I will check it out right now. This kind of stuff makes me sick. I will report it and I will e-mail you tube executives.

    please do let us know where to e-mail execs. plus, i don't always agree with PETA, but you know when they get hold of an issue, they really tear the skin out of it, so i think i'll contact them. let me know what you find....

    I just saw it it was horrible. I immediately flagged it as inapropriate and then I went to Peta, it's a web site for ethical treatment of animals. I e-mailed the media center of Peta and I also e-mailed the peta home in america and sent them all the info on it. Other people reading this please go Peta ethical treatment for animals and e-mail them about this right away. This person needs to be prosecuted. Thanks

    We got the infor from dogster and left comments but it doesn't seem our comments are coming up. We flagged as well. I didn't see the thing on his my space about blue cat. Famous grandpa or not it doesn't seem like he has parents are around because they would have heard that. They need to take that cat away from that idiot. IF his grandfather is Ossie Davis I bet he wouldn't be too proud of his little idiot boy. I certainly hope that they prosecute him but I am wondering why it has been flagged so many times and not taken down. You tube is being very irresponsible because they are being notified of the violence. My 11 year old knows how to treat animals better then that boy does. It's sad to think there are poeple like him out there. What a jerk. is there a way to get the video to his family I wonder?:-k:-k Let them see there monster at work? I guess if he a famous relative we could get the Inquirerer. :) (Just kidding on that part.)

    I couldnt watch it but it still makes me sick. I posted it as a bulletin on myspace to all my cat friends. I have 655 friends that are all cats so hopefully the will see it and help. I hope that someone who can do something about this will see the video before it is taken off. Poor little baby I just hope this guy doesn't try and add fuel to the fire by making even worse videos. I really hope the kitty gets a better home.

    Ok everybody I e-mailed Peta twice and I just went to the aspca in New York and they have an e-mail and I reported the incident. I also went to the New York Police department and e-mailed them about the incident. I hope this works. Everyone needs to probably go to Peta first, they love a scandal. Then go to the ASPCA in New york and e-mail them. I couldn't find how to file a complaint at the New York Police department but I did find an e-mail to someone there. If more then one person e-mails these places they will do something. Taking the video off of you tube does nothing. We need to get the cat rescued and the person in trouble. I can be done if we stick together on this.

    You guys have been real busy trying to help this poor kitty. I made myself watch the whole video twice as I felt it was important to be a witness to that cat's torture. The little **** throws the cat at the wall twice. It was getting late here in the UK and I needed to sleep. Needless to say I didn't sleep well. Well done to everyone who has flagged the video, posted comments and contacted the authorities. There are enough members on Catster and Dogster to make a difference in cases like this. We have a powerful voice and we can and should use it! Leida.

    I flagged it too.. Poor kitty :( That kid's hands were holding the poor baby sooo tightly.. you could see how rough he was being ... no wonder the sicko did not want to show his face in the video. Praying for all the poor furbabies out there who have owners like this.

    I can't understand why Youtube are still showing the video, how long must it take them to act upon something like this? I have flagged the video and I'm sure the majority of the others who've viewed it have. Youtube need to kick that scumag off quick and he needs to be prosecuted for animal cruelty.
