Is anyone else having problems with the instant messaging not working? I tried it on both Firefox and IE, but couldn't do anything.

    Do you use an ad blocker? We had that problem a while ago when we added a filter for the Trupanion/Together Tag/Arm & Hammer ad that's at the right side of the screen. Apparently, that caused the ad blocker to block the IM, too. :-k

    Hello furriends, :-h Catster HQ wrote me to tell me about the IM. They are making changes for the betta. I copied & pasted this to show you. OK? Kally Kat\'s Mommy Liz __________________________________________________________ Hello Catster IM user, We are writing to let you know that we will be shutting down the Catster Instant Messaging feature at the end of this month. We know that you have used this feature recently, and wanted to send you a personal message to inform you of the change and why it\'s happening. Our current Instant Messaging offering is technologically out-of-date and is not performing reliably. We are unable to support it further. We hope to replace it with a better system soon. We appreciate your patience in using our current IM feature. In fact, your willingness to continue using it - in its current unpredictable state - is the reason we didn’t take this action sooner. But problems with IM are getting worse and happening more frequently. It just isn’t fair to those who contact us for support when we have to respond by saying there is nothing we can do to fix the problem. We regret having to do this and apologize to those of you who rely on and will miss this feature. You will still be able to see \"Who\'s Online\" on the home page (when you\'re logged in) and here ( to know which of your friends are on the site when you are. You can then message them through Catster Paw Mail or using third party IM software. We are continually trying to improve our sites and hope that you can understand our decision. Thanks for loving Catster. We love you right back! Catster HQ
