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.


teaching wormie to be a happy boarder

Stormy wormie doesn't like strange cats. We are going a bit north for a few days during Christmas and the kitties will be staying at the kennel. Since I work there, I have the advantage of taking the cats up there to get them used to the new environment. Yesterday, I hung out in the cat room with wormie, opened her kennel, read to her, and gave some wet food. She warmed up enough to stop hiding under her blankie, began eating wet food. However, she was growling and hissing. I'm very proud of her for making so much progress but it upsets me to see her so stressed. If anyone knows of some really useful books or webpages on cats and their psycology it would be much appreciated!y
