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, www.catster.com 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.
Walking Two Cats at the same time....
I have successfully trained both my kitties (Salem Spookypants and Snowy Snugglepants) to walk outside on a leash at the same time!!!! At first I thought this would not be possible...but it is!!!
I trained Salem to walk on a leash when we first adopted him and he has always enjoyed his "walks" tremendously. We adopted Snowy on Valentines day this year at 6 months old, so I quickly got him acclimated to wearing a harness and then walking outside on a leash separate from Salem.
In the beginning it was tough to get them to walk in the same direction....I had both arms extended it opposite directions. But after many trials and errors, they both got the hang of it and now walk together!!!!
We take leisurely walks around my condominium complex, stopping to check out the trees, flowers, and of course the BBQ grills, lolz....
From a outsiders perspective, we must look bizarre! But whatever! I love my two boys, and I know they really enjoy their walks outside on a beautiful day!!!
