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.

Hey kitties, I am a 13 year old hunk looking for some nutrition advice. My parents were feeding me Natural balance dry cat food (good for all ages) and their canned food too. After the first recall they switched me to canned Pet Promise - which I loved the first 2 days and now I just nibble and pick at. Now with this latest recall they want to switch me from the Natural balance dry food too - which I have enjoyed for years. Now, my questions are: does anyone else like pet promise wet/dry? Do you think this is a good brand for a senior kitty like myself? I am confused as to if I need a senior cat food plan and what I should be looking out for. I used to think high protein was bad for the kidneys and now I hear it is essential so that I don\'t lose muscle. What do you guys think?? Purrs in health, Friday

    We switched him to Pet Promise Dry Senior Cat food and he LOVES it. It seems easier to chew too. I will check out the brand you suggested for wet food b/c he really doesn\'t seem to like the PP wet food or the wellness we tried this morning. What a picky guy :)~ What is the new natural cat? Where do I find this? Purrs...

    Friday, The New Natural Cat is a book by Anitra Frazier. It's a guide to cat care and contains some great information about common illnesses, and I think it has a section on nutrition too. It has just about everything you need to know when you take care of a kitty companion. I bought my copy from for around 5 dollars. Very much worth it; a great book.
