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, www.catster.com 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.
Help! My cat keeps trying to kill the new kitten!
Hello all, I just recently got a new kitten and my spoiled brat only child cat hates the new addition. Oliver, the new kitten, is handling the situation very well considering his new sister keeps hissing and growling at him. We cannot let them be in the same room together because Bagheera literally attacks him. We are keeping him in his own room and only bring him out when he is in the carrier so they can get to know each other that way. The first time we did this Baghi would lunge at the carrier, hiss and growl with all her might. She even would growl at my husband and myself (she even tried to bite us). We were able to break her of this hateful behavior toward us by ignoring her for a day. Now she is nice to us even when the baby is around. However, she is still pretty mean to Oliver. She isn\'t growling as much or lunging as badly but she still hisses. It seems to be going so slow. I\'m not sure what we are doing is working. Does anyone have any suggestions? Anything I could try that might help? I\'m willing to try anything! I want my babies to get along (I\'d settle for Baghi not trying to kill Oliver).
