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.


Amoxi tablets

Hello - my parent's cat recently had a tooth extracted and has been healing nicely. The vet had given her amoxi tabs to take twice a day for 10 days. She's been doing ok but today she threw up twice. The first time was full of fur, about an hour later she threw up a second time and it was all liquidy. My mom called the vet who said she probably threw up the second time b/c of the furballs she let off an hour earlier. Is this normal? She is 11 years old and has never taken amoxi before. Any information anyone has would be helpful. Thanks!

    I simply cannot take Amoxi at all. It makes me sick to my tummy and I throw it up. Mommy even tried giving me Pepcid AC to help, but it didn't work. Talk to the vet and see what can be done. If you just get sick a little, the vet can tell you a dosage of Pepcid AC or another med to help your tummy. If not, you may have to take a different med. We are like humans and not all of us can take every antibiotic. Good luck and keep us posted.
