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.
Stressed out cat - Separation anxiety
After two trips to the vet and a clean bill of health we're thinking we have a stressed out 9 month old cat. He is a very loving boy, always following you around, purring loudly, and laying on your lap.
He appears to be middening ever since we left him alone for 12+ hours on Thanksgiving. It was the longest he's been alone since we got him 2 months ago. We're trying to re-litter box train him, but its only semi working. He's still not using it every time.
Someone has been home with him almost constantly since then (one of us is between jobs at the moment), but he just keeps going in high traffic areas and not his box.
I'm thinking about trying Feliway, but wasn't sure if it would help or make the situation worse. Has anyone had this problem and what worked for you? Vet suggested meds soon if it didn't stop... but that's the last thing we want to do.
