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.

ok heres the deal: i rescued shadow from outside when she had a kitten. she is fixed and have been trying to get her use to inside which isnt working. She will ripp up screens, rip the carpet by the door untill its bare and rip the door. i think she is fusterated because now she beats up on her catmate Mo to the point i think there going to kill eatchother. my mother lives on a farm out in the country, and has 2 neuterd males. she said shadow may come be a barn cat (she would have shelter, food and water everyday) i know most people would say no dont put her outside, but... my reasons - i found her outside -she is fixed -she isnt very adoptable with her screen and door ripping problem, unless de-clawed and i refuse to do it - she is showing singns of agression when before it wasnt an issue can anyone suggest ways to get her use to her new home? i just dont want to throw her outside and she runs away
