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.

Mom, against her will, has been letting me go outside for a year or so now. I just love it so much it's all I think about. I have been a healthy 12lbs my whole life (3 years old in August) But, ever since I have been outside this past few months, mom said I was getting too skinny. I said, what do you expect when I run around and hunt all day? She wants to put me on a high protine high fat diet and was wondering what the best stuff was? I don't really like canned food so dry is best. Mom is hoping one of you guys can help me find the best stuff. Thanks in advance. Any advise will help.

    Be careful. You should not run around outside. We had a cat like you and it got something-we were never sure- and it got skinny and died. There are problems your vet can check, like hyperthyroid disease and you lose weight quickly. I wonder what you may be getting as you are having fun hunting-a safe home is a good place for things that cause weight loss. :D

    I would recommend a trip to the vet to rule out any medical problems and a fecal check for worms.

    Thanks guys. Mom checked and said I only lost one pound. I hope nothing is wrong with me. We were at the vet a month ago and they said my poop & blood looked good. I also get that revolution stuff for flees and ticks. I hope we don't have to back to thhe vet! That's one scary place!!! Thanks so much for your help :~
