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.

Hi everyone. My diet consists of cat biscuits to graze on (Friskies usually, but recently I've been loudly displaying my preference for Purina Cat Chow), plus cat food of whatever brand is on special in pouch or tin form, plus meat from the pet food store or butcher (especially when money is tight). I have at least one, sometimes two small servings of wet food a day and the rest of the time I eat the biscuits. Oh, the meat from the pet food shop or butcher is usually rabbit mince, "cat mince" (horsemeat?), beef mince, beef liver, chicken liver, chicken necks, chicken giblets, lamb kidneys and beef heart. Very, very occasionally I also get a whole turkey wing to myself to munch on. I hope these are all okay for me to eat... Do you think I'm getting all my nutritional needs? The biscuits are labeled "100% complete" so J hopes I'm getting enough from that even though we don't really trust the packaging, but I always insist on my wet food. I haven't become overweight yet although I did gain slightly now it's Winter and I spend more time sleeping. PS: I live in New Zealand.
