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 foster kitten has Hookworm and Coccidia

I'm fostering a little feral kitten, Munson, who is just a doll but has had some pretty evil poops. Turns out it is Hookworm and Coccidia - icckky. He needs a bunch of meds and I'm not sure how to keep his box clean. One vet tech said to bleach the box and then dump the litter after each poop session. The vet said clumping is OK but change it each day?? Anyone have experience with this? Poor little dude was so sweet at the vet, not a mean bone in his body. He only weighs 1.8 lbs. I hope he'll be OK!! Thanks for the support :)
