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.

Hi there! I'm not "new" to the thread, but I've never posted. So here is my dilemia. We recently put up a new baby gate to prevent our puppy, Katsumi from getting into the part of our home that has Cricket's food and litter. But I'm not sure if Cricket can simply get over it. Is there a way I can train him to jump over... Boxes or something? Cricket is a big cat and the gate is 32" high. It has vertical bars an has a door part to open the gate- it is foot activated. Ideas?

    Do you have more than one cat? We had a cat once that didn't understand how to jump over the baby gate at first, but would watch the other cats do it and started mimicking them to to eventually figure it out. He will get the hang of it in a few days I bet.
