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.


For William ...

William, I found that thread in Cat Health that you might want to take a look at. It\'s on Page 2 in that forum. The title of the thread is Help! Food Change for Health Reasons! and the original poster is Oliver. I think some of the information there would really help you.

    Olivia, thank you so much! This is exactly the reason Oz and I wanted to be pals with you and Tanner. My mommy will go check out that thread right now. Also, maybe you might be interested to know that today marked the second day of my being on a more set schedule for feeding times (which I do not like at all after being free fed for so long) and for eating wet food. Mommy went today and bought us several cans of good quality wet food and tonight I had Blue Buffalo Wilderness Turkey. I can\'t wait to see what I\'ll have tomorrow, but Oz, on the other hand is still being difficult about it all. He actually put his mouth on a small scoop of wet food tonight though, and that is the closest he\'s come to even acknowledging the wet food is there. My mommy was so happy she could have danced! Thanks again Olivia for the info for my mommy, she appreciates it and so do I.

    You're welcome, William! :) One of the posters in that thread mentioned crushing up some kibble into crumbs and sprinkling it over the canned food, so that the familiar smell and taste of the kibble will induce the cats to eat the canned food. It was the first time I'd heard of that technique, and quite honestly it made a lot of sense. Maybe it will work for Oz, too!
