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.
Clark loves to come jump in my lap when I am sitting down with the laptop on the couch. I will type and then I can tell he gets annoyed that Im not paying 100% attention to him. I then start petting him. He loves it then he starts playing biting me. It doesnt hurt, no big deal. Then he changes from being playful and cute to hissing at my hand. That is when I say to him, "We are playing, you are taking this too serious" and I put him on the floor.
Is hissing ever part of play? I always thought if a cat hisses they are upset or annoyed or scared.
It is Clark that gets up on my lap, Clark that initiates the play that procedes to play biting. If this was all his choice why does it end up with him hissing? This is the only time I ever hear him hiss.
