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.
Leo has blood on his bum!??!!??
Hi Guys--I had to post this because Leo was way too embarrassed---Mommy noticed Leo had Blood on his bum hole this morning. She is really worried--she called the vet and made an appointment but they didn't seem as concerned as she is!! My mommy's sisters kitty had this happen about a year ago---and her vet told her that he was having hairballs coming out his bum end(since he never threw up hairballs) and gave them a oil type thing to feed him to lube him up and they haven't had that problem again since they give him the oil.
Mommy was hoping that this may be the case, but is afraid it may be something internal---mommy doesn't know if she should request blood tests??? she couldn't get Leo's stool sample because we have that clumping litter and there was 2 poopies in there---she didn't know which was which and didn't see blood in either??
Any kitty have this happen or heard about the hairballs?? Should mommy request blood samples be taken??
