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.


My cat twitches...

He's about 10 months old and has a bit of siamese and pixie-bob in him. He's constantly twitching. His ears twitch, his tail.. I think I'm over reacting, but my brother said he's going to have seizures. So now, I'm being really paranoid. He did have fleas. Not real bad, we noticed them pretty quickly but he had this twitching problem before the fleas. He is neutered too. Any idea what could be causing this or is it just some behavioral tic?

    You look like a DSH(domestic short hair) cat to me. I had never heard of a Pixie-bob and went to look at them and I would say you don't have the characteristics of this breed. the twitching can be a normal thing. Unless you are showing other5 symptoms, I would n'ty be overly concerned. You may want to write down the times, dates, and lengths of time theses "twitching" episodes last. If you have a video camera, taping them and showing your vet may not be a bad idea. If the vet feels they are nothing tho worry about , this will ease your mind. Purrs
