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.


Heating up canned food

Hello, Mooch here! Is heating up my wet canned food from the fridge because it tastes better that way, or is eating cold wet food bad for my tummy? Thanks!

    Cold food is fine, and heating it up is good too. Neither option is bad for your cat. Some cats think that the food tastes better reheated, and some don't care. It's really just a matter of taste. Personally, my cat eats cold wet food from the fridge, and he doesn't seem to mind and it's never made him sick. However, some cats are pickier than others, which is where the reheat option comes in. A note on reheating, if you reheat the food make sure it's only about as warm as body temperature. This imitates the warmth found on new kills cats would naturally make in the wild. Also, you wouldn't want to burn your cats mouth!

    Thanks, Big Hairy, I'm glad to read that. I noticed that my siblings who live downstairs sometimes get cold wet food, and I was worried they might get tummy aches if it wasn't warmed up. I guess if we don't mind it, it's okay! Thank you!
