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.


Urinary track problems - Bad habits of peeing out of place.

Hello everyone; Tiki has a history of urinary problems, and ever since I have been making sure his diet is right and he has plenty of water; but just yesterday I noticed he began showing signs of it again. He is peeing fine, but he sits longer and has been peeing on the floormat in the bathroom. I know whenever he's in pain he like to find a "better" spot to do his business, but I can't handle him getting into this habit. He's done it twice. Once yesterday, once today. The litter is clean, newly changed. Is there some way I can convince him that the litter box is a better place to do this? I'll be moving into someone's place at the end of the summer and I can't have him peeing around their house for the couple months we are there. I'm not even sure that he is doing this because of pain; I find he's been more irritable than usual with Keesher too. Perhaps he's just stressed out about something? Maybe I need a second litter box? Sorry about the rant, I'm just worried this will turn into another aweful experience. I'm ready to hear ANY suggestions you have. If he means taking him to a Cat whisperer, I might just do it, lol. Thanks a bunch

    There\'s a litter with litter attractant already in it-(Dr.Elsey\'s Cat Attract) It\'s on PetSmart\'s website. It says on the package that the litter is money back guaranteed and will help train/retrain cats using the litter box. Good Luck, keep us posted on how things work out. =;
