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.

    I hope we're not out of step--Mom is a huge fan of this superior breed. It's been debated that I have a little 'wegie' in me cause I like to climb sheer faces of windows, etc. and I never meow--just sweet chirrups. Just want to say NFCs are the most beautiful of the long- haired breeds.

    We are beautiful....or um....handsome in my case! I just turned 1 and am soooo big!! We do chirp, and climb up high on everything, incl. screen doors, tv's...but I love the bathtub as well...:? I found 3 relatives on this site which was sooo cool!! Harry, Smudge and Sissel. Harry's mom wanted me as well, but my mom looked for me for a long time and got to me first. I am going to be living with a dog soon, a rescue from Puerto Vallarta and that should be fun as we like dogs! I don't think my house sister Patches will be happy though. She's really moody so it's hard to say, but I am pretty sure she will be mad! I am very easy going so I will adapt to anything. Ok, let's keep this going!!

    Hi you guys out there in the north! I\'m one of the few (NFCs) living downunder (Australia) and I certainly don\'t enjoy the everlasting summer here. Eventhough in the coolest winter I might have 5 degree C in the early morning. So I leave my fur all year round all over the house! Still I am the best looking boy here and most likely the biggest kitten too. One thing worth mentioning: - Australia / Sydney, and the area where I live, I have encountered all kinds of strange-looking local wild life in the near-by bush. So call me OZ forest Cat.

    Hello! I'm a Norwegian Forest Cat also! I am very fluffy and I'm two years old! It is very nice meeting some others like me (I'm always stuck with my Bombay friend, Sylvester) and hopefully our breed will become very well-known! Hugs, Pepsi xoxoxo

    I agree with you, Obi-Wan-Kinobi, as I am in Down Under, also. Living in one of the coldest parts, though (Tasmania, it\'s so close to Antartica!) I tend to be able to cope with the summers fairly well. Cassie :^:

    Hello fellow wegies! I hail from the great state of Texas and now reside in Washington state. My "help" adopted me and since then I have learned how to play and that I really love treats.
