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.
Sudden Aversion to Cat Bed
This is so silly, but I have a cat, who LOVED her cat bed. I took her to stay with a friend who runs a Persian Rescue Facility, assured that my cat would probably have her own room (she's not good with other kitties.) She had her own room, and I brought her cat bed to stay with her. When I picked her up, she has a HUGE aversion to the cat bed. I rubbed cat nip on it, threw it in the dryer, can't smell any urine, and just don't know what to do! This wouldn't be such a big deal, other than it was her favorite thing in the world up until 3 weeks ago and she seems uncomfortable at night. She used to sleep just in the bed, now she meows and cries and sleeps in multiple places with a lot of visiting . . . I wonder if another cat "used" the cat bed. She's pretty unhappy. Any advice for how I can make it "friendly and safe" for her again?
