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.

Cheers,
Catster






I want to go outside!

I want to go outside soooo bad! I look out the window all day and when mommy or daddy try to leave i want to too! I try to run out a couple of times but they always catch me. Daddy says once they get a leash for me he is scared i will run out the door without my leash. I have never been outside unless they hold me. How do I get rid of the urge to run out? Is it ok for daddy to buy me a leash or will that make me run out without my leash? I am over a year old now and only recently have tried to go out.

    hey hun... I'm with you on wanting to go out also... what my mom did is she made a harness for me... and hooks me to the retractable leashes.... so this way I can sit outside and yet roam just a bit. so yeah have your mom and dad get you a harness... I'm a indoor cat but am allowed to be outdoors when my mom is outside... them lizards love to tease me by the window....
