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.
Am I done being a kitten? Mommy is sad
You might remember my last post "Do you think I'm fat?"
Mommy posted that when I was 6 months old because I was already 10 pounds and had a floppy belly (I was neutered at 11 weeks, that might have something to do with it). I was 2 pounds when she took me home at 12 weeks old (January) and I grew really, REALLY fast. Mommy thought I was going to be a giant kitty but maybe not.
Well now I'm 9 months old and I'm still 10 pounds! I look a little different, maybe a little longer/slimmer, but it's hard to tell, and my face looks more grown up. Mommy still calls me a kitten/baby but other people say "cute cat".
Is it common for a kitten to reach full size at 6 months old? Do you think I'll have another growth spurt? Mommy still thinks I look little next to my big brother Sidney. He's about 15 pounds and Mommy says he's "curvy" just like her and that means more to love.
Here's a few recent pictures. I'm the tabby and Sidney is the cow cat. Am I "Grown Up Marley" now? Does Mommy have to stop calling me a kitten?
