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.

With a kitty with a very sensetive tummy and on SCience Diet dry ZD, what do you think of small amounts of Waltham and Pro Plan wet food. Our vet even said the canned ZD may not do much for him and is very high for small cans and he doesn't really like it. He likes the others much more.

    In my opinion, that is not a good idea. I would reccomend seaking out a better food that may not effect your tummy, and you may even like it more!! Good Luck!! :^:

    Dakota, have you considered a raw food diet? I've heard it can help cats with digestive issues. Since it is a species-appropriate diet, cats have evolved to eat raw meaty bones which is why they tend to do so well on it! I switched Natasha to raw about a month ago, and let's just say that I don't think I'll ever go back to kibble again!;c;

    Dakota, I have IBD (inflammatory bowel disease) and I was on Z/D also. I hated it! I lost so much weight even when I did eat it and then I switched to Royal Canin's limited ingredients and I was the same on that. I still had bouts of bloody diarrhea and vomiting, too. I now eat Wellness canned, Serengeti, Solid Gold, Wellness Core or California Natural Herring and sweet tater and I am doing grrrrrrreat!!! No diarrhea or vomiting since we switched!

    :D Maggs, thanks for that IBS information. After all my tests, the last thing the vet is doing is treating me for that, even though I only vomit,no diarrhea. So far, with a shot of prednisone (I know,be careful) I have been much, much better. That\'s why I wondered about food. I never ate wet before and now I am, and I am gaining weight. You all are SO helpful.:-h Thank you
