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.

    BeBe, sometimes if you change the whole box of litter it's too much, too soon. You could try mixing a small bit of the pine in with their regular litter and gradually increase it. That's what we did when we had a foster who didn't like our WBCL. We started off with something she liked and gradually added WB until she was switched over.

    The smell of Feline Pine was way too strong for me (mom here) and I\'m sure for the kits, too. Although I think Gump did try to taste the Feline Pine (and I believe Pine can be toxic). I also didn\'t like the little pellet things and I didn\'t think it did an effective job of absorbing/clumping. Thumbs down on Feline Pine from us! We\'re sticking with regular clumping litter.

    yeah I like scooping it daily and this stuff is really hard too. Plus, I think when it absorbs the pee and fluffs up, that's whats throwing the cats off. I really liked it otherwise plus it was pretty cheap lol

    BeBe, they make a feline pine scoopable litter. That might be worthwhile if you want to try it. Mom mixed it very slowly with the old litter, and we got used to it. Problem was, it tracked too much and dad hated that, so we went back to our original litter.
