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.


Switching Kitten to Wellness CORE?

We\'ve recently switched our adult cats and dogs to Wellness CORE. Aimi is still only four months old (almost five), so she\'s still on kitten food (Wellness). My mom pays for their food (I\'m disabled and can\'t work so she doesn\'t mind paying for it exactly, it\'s more the costs that irritate her. She\'s only recently started to listen to me about higher-quality foods and still misses that $20 or so for 40 lbs of food..LOL), and with how expensive CORE is I\'d like to start cutting down on other food expenses as soon as I can. When I was figuring out how much the kitties get fed every day with CORE I noticed it also has a table for kittens on it. My question is, about what age could I start Aimi on CORE? She has one full unopened bag of her kitten food left, so I\'d use that to transition, of course. According to the bag, she does fit in the age range but I\'d like some more opinions before I switch her. :)

    I'm pretty sure CORE is an "all life stages" food, so she technically could be eating it now.

    Core is an all life stages food. You can start switching anytime.

    Thanks! Once she\'s done with the kitten food bag she\'s on now I\'m going to start transitioning her. :D

    I started eating Core at nine weeks. Mom and dad switched my big brother to it knowing they would get a kitten sometimes soon, so I could be on the same food from day 1. Mom says it's near impossible to keep one pet from eating another pet's food, so this made it much easier to feed both of us good quality food.
