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.

18 year old Tyler Weinman has been caught. He is the Accused cat killer in Miami! Was just on Fox News!They need to throw the book at him!,2933,526229,00.html "Weinman was charged with 19 felony counts of animal cruelty, 19 misdemeanor counts of improperly disposing of an animal body and four felony counts of burglary related to the cat deaths. It is unclear if he has an attorney. Messages left at phone numbers for his parents were not immediately returned and no one answered the door at his home."

    Has he been arrested? Is he in custody? If so, your cats are probably safe. But do remember that making your cats indoor-only kitties is almost invariably guaranteed to extend their lifespan--not only are there psychopaths out there, but there are too, too many traffic accidents, and cats meeting other cats outside can pass on FIV and FeLV. And, my eternal question--why is it almost always adolescent boys who want to torture and kill cats? The cat in the oven death was the deed of a girl, but that was actually a statistical rarity. Why can\'t SOME men deal with cats?
