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.


Petitions - do they even work?

    I don't know Niki. I think the key is getting them into the right hands...note that is plural. I don't believe it does any good to deliver a petition to just one person, or to deliver it to multiple people but all on the same side of the cause/within the same organization, etc. I think a petition needs to be presented to various parties. But one of the bigger points of a petition is that hopefully it brings general awareness to an issue.

    I think you have to look at it like this. If you are a business or a government etc. and you get a list of genuine people telling you that they don't like the way you are doing things - then you'd be wise to listen. Because it's often those people who put you where you are and those same people can pull you off that spot as well. After all - a general election is also a sort of opinion poll. ;)
