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.


Potty Issues

HI all. I have a 10 month old Bengal who has been "missing" his litter box. We use the silica crystals that my breeder recommended which he hasn't had problem before but now seems to be going outside the box. When cats spray is it like a puddle when they pee or would it be on walls? Cause there's little puddles here and there. He has also gone potty in storage boxes, so not sure if he can't hold it in or what. But I need help! Oh, he's getting neutered on Monday, not sure if that's the problem...

    How many generatios is he/she from an ALC? If close at all, toilet training is an option. Try putting a wide, low bowl of water half way between the litter box and the toilet. Gradually as you find he soils the water, dump, clean, refill and place a foot closer to the toilet. Repeat until bowl is beside toilet. Then in the toilet. The bowl has to be at least 6-8 inches wide so he/she can easily climb in.
