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.

Mommy\'s very worried, she just noticed I have a dry nose...with a drop of blood (from the dryness). Mommy is taking me to the vet there anything she can do to help me in the meantime?

    Rubbing a little bit of vaseline on your nosey would be good.:(( Poor baby.|:| But let it dry out again for the vet (sorry), she needs to know what's going on by seeing it for herself. |bb|

    I agree with the post about the vaseline to keep it moist. Question, have you been in the sun much (even indoors by the window)? I noticed you have a white face and very pink nose and my vet warned my mom about sun exposure for those of us that don\'t have a lot of pigment, especially ears and noses. Mom is putting sunscreen on me since then. I don\'t like it, but I guess I\'m at risk for skin cancer because of my color. Maybe you got a little sunburn on your cute little nose? Just a thought to run past your vet if they don\'t think it\'s anything else. Purrrs, Bella

    Mommy - He is an indoor kitty - I keep the blinds down, but it can get bright in here, I'll def. ask the vet!! Other than his nose..he seems healthy...very active and playful (as usual). I took them to the vet a few weeks ago..both kittens were healthy and got their first set of shots...thanks again for all your advice!! :)

    Hm, my nose has always been dry. Could it be just because I spend absolutely every waking moment sitting in the window?
