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, www.catster.com 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.
Help - Some kind of worm parasite
I just barfed a worm in the living room. It looked like a half inch piece of noodle roni and coiled up when mom played with it.
Mom is beside herself. How did I get parasites as an indoor kitty? We just booked a vet appointment for Thursday (earliest available) I seem to be moving fine - maybe a little lazier than usual, but it\'s hot out.
All we can think of that I come in contact with is ants and flies. Mom has quite the ant problem and they get in my food :-O
What is my worm thing and how should we make sure I don\'t get it again? The vet has never recommended anything beyond whatever my yearly shots are. Do kitties need things like heartworm pills?
