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.

Well, the holidays are over, all the cat toys are broken or used up. Too cold to do anything? Boring, boring, boring !!!! What's a cat to do now??? You're in luck --- it's that time again --- A Catster Winter Carnival The Catster Winter Carnival is open!!!!!!! Time to rev up your winter athleticism! Brave the cold and snow for a great pic of you doing your winter thing! The Catster Winter Carnival Group will hold a "photoshop" picture contest depicting you in your favorite winter sport. Enter your picture right on A Catster Winter Carnival Group's page. Remember, photoshopped pictures only; no cat heads on human bodies allowed. And because this is a non-Olympic year, your winter sport of choice does NOT have to be an Olympic sport. Anything goes!!! If you actually go out into the snow (for real), we want to see those pictures too! Voting on the pictures will be in February, so you have plenty of time to get your picture ready. Exact date and voting instructions posted later). Voting opened to all Catsters, whether you belong to our group or not. You CAN vote for yourself. We will leave last year's pics up for a few more weeks, just to get you back into the winter groove. The Catster with the most votes will receive a one-year subscription to Catster Plus. P-mail Aragorn, Apollo or Athena if you have any questions. Purrs and Snowballs! Aragorn, Apollo and Athena ;c;;c;;c;;c;;c;;c;;c;;c;;c;

    Voting on A Catster Winter Carnival starts Thursday, February 24, 2011, 12 a.m. and will end Friday, March 25, 2011 at midnight, Catster time. The winner will receive a one-year subscription to Catster Plus. Voting Rules: Opened to all Catsters, whether they are in our Group or not; one vote per family each day. For cats who have submitted a picture, each cat can vote once a day. Cats can vote for themselves or others not in their family (each day), but NOT for members of their own family. Example: One family (the MEOW family) submits one picture with all four of their cats in it. Each of those cats can vote for himself/herself each day. So each CAT, not the picture itself, will get one vote that day. And if another family (the Purr family), has only one cat that entered a picture, that cat can vote for itself each day. So that cat has as much chance of winning as the four-cat family. We are trying to allow enough voting to all family members while keeping the voting fair for those with small families or large. Pmail your votes to me. There's still time to enter a picture of yourself enjoying this great winter weather! Check out our group's pictures and vote for your favorite!
