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.

Hi! My kitty, Faith, was diagnosed with struvite crystals recently and she\'s currently eating Purina UR to help with the problem. I\'m finding a lot of information on the internet about struvite crystals and it\'s all a bit confusing. Does anyone have any suggestions about other foods or supplements that might help Faith? Thanks so much!

    Eating more canned food is thought to help prevent crystals. Canned food has a high water content which is helps maintain a healthy urinary tract. Any canned food will work, not just prescription food. Here's a web site that tells why any canned food is best for us to eat and to help prevent certain health issues:
