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.


Question about my cat\'s belly

I have a snowshoe cat, he's about 1 and a half years old. I have realized that his belly is bigger than my other cats. He's not overweight, but it looks like his organs have "dropped" into a pouch... What should I do? Is this a medical concern? (This is for another one of my cats. Not Taj)

    Is he neutered? If so this is totally nomal for neuter cats the get the "Old Mans Belly" If not how long has this been going on? does he eat well or maybe too well? I would also call my vet if he is not neuter not eating too much and is active then just see what the vet has too say. Hope this helps :-h

    Is it just a little flap of skin that hangs down? Some of my cats have had that, we'd call it their "sack" :)) kitty (RIP) had a "sack" If it looks abnormal/has you worried, I'd get it checked out.
