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.
Plus Opinion on Changes...
Hey my Plus friends...if you have gotten over your shock, for good or bad, please put in your two treats about what you think of the new changes.
(This is what I posted in another thread)
Sorry Catster team, but you have really dumpped the dirty kitty litter all over the place!
That \"Community\" bar is a royal pain in the butt. Half of the time the ad covers the right side of it up when you are on your own page and you have to refresh the page to see the darn thing! ! !
Why did you mess with the Search button??? It made it easy to find other cat pages and ANY info we wanted because there was categories to pick from to HELP you in your SEARCH.
There are many other things I could go on about, but the main thing is that when I joined, I thought Catster was all about showing off the cats that were on here and the people who loved them...the stories behind the love. It was beautiful (and still is) to go from page to page and look at the pictures of these wonderful cats, the time that their loving mommies and daddies have put into their pages. Now that is shoved to the right side of the page, like a afterthought. The main part of the bar looks like a search engine you would find any place else on the internet.
I am very disappointed in all of this. I have put in a lot of time and effort to show off my furbabies. I have also made many great friends, so at the moment, I am not going anywhere, but Catster HQ centainly did NOT think about how this would affect the people on here...unless they intend to do away with our pages one day also?
