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.
My meezers love their canned food (packed with gluten). Homemade alternatives???
My Siamese cats, Echo and Ember, love canned food. I try to avoid meat by-products first, then fillers. They love Nutro\'s Savory Hunter\'s Stew with Venison, Fancy Feast chicken flavours, and Purina Pro Plan flavors, but they have gluten in them. I\'ve tried offering them things like chicken soup (turned down) and oatmeal with cheese (Echo loved this, Ember turned up her nose). Echo will eat just about anything, including bean and cheese tacos and whole wheat bread. Ember tends to be the picky one. She really only likes the gravy from the cat food. She\'ll eat the food part after she\'s done with the gravy (sometimes). Echo eats the gravy, then gobbles down the food.
Any recipe or website suggestions? All the websites I\'ve found have questionable ingredients (onion powder to flavor?!?) or cost money (ebook advertisement) or just aren\'t precise. (\'throw chicken and cheese in pot, stir, cool before serving\' how long?? how much??) Any suggestions or recipes are very welcome. Also, Ember weighs 10 lbs, and is a rather petite cat. She has 3 legs and doesn\'t get around well. I need to feed her something she won\'t get fatter off of.
Thanks! Echo and Ember would thank you too if they could
