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.

This was sent to me on Facebook. If you can help spread the word, please do. These babies need a safe furever home that can provide special care to the injured kitty. The photos can be viewed at: Warning: One photo is rather graphic due to injuries the tortie received... Ruby & Valentino, 2 sibling kittens who need a home: If you can help one or both, please contact: Diana Hensley Founder and President The O\'Malley Alley Cat Organization P. O. Box 633452 Nacogdoches, TX 75963-3452 (936) 556-2754 [email protected] Warning: Ruby has ...a head injury from a fan blade and is under vet care. Pictures may be a bit graphic for some. Msg. from Diana: Ruby and Valentino were trying to survive in a flower bed at a Comfort Suite Inn located right off of a very busy highway in Nacogdoches. They were so hungry that it only took 2 minutes to trap the 12 week old kittens. Valentino, the black and white tuxedo is a doll and I was able to pet him with no problem. In fact, he solicited the petting and talked but as is expected, he is scared. The little Tortie was extremely scared. Dr. Garner opted to net her and all of her dead skin came off during that adventure exposing a very nasty fan blade injury. He was not able to stitch it up as there isn\'t any lose skin in that area so she will have to be treated with Granulex (a spray on medicine used on burn victims) for a few weeks. Yes, finally, I\'m getting to the real reason I\'m writing you -- the tortie is not going to be pretty and as you know, tortie\'s are hard to place anyway! More than likely her hair will never grow back on her head and right eye will be bug eyed. Ruby really has improved greatly and I can spray the granulex on her head with very little effort. Although she acts scared, she does not try to bite or scratch and does enjoy being petted and of course, her snackies. She adores her brother, whom I have named Valentino because he is so precious. He, too, was frightened at first, but after only a few hours realized how lucky he was. I\'m attaching pictures of him as well. These two have been caged at a Vet\'s office now for several weeks as we do not have any available fosters to take them. Please spread the word around to see if someone might be willing to help these two babies out. They will, of course, be altered, etc. Contact Diana at (936) 556-2754 or [email protected] if you can help. If you can\'t help, please pass this on.
