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.

In January of 2008 a Documentary called "A Dog's Breakfast" first aired on CBC in Canada. This was only being shared via Internet here in the U.S. Now, after three YEARS (Times listed Eastern Standard): "Pet Food: A Dog's Breakfast" will premiere on Thursday, February 10th at 10pm and will repeat that evening at 1am. The documentary will also repeat on Sunday, February 13th at 10pm If you hadn't seen it via Internet back then, I hope all Catsters can watch Dr. Hodgkins and Professor Smart not only setting things straight, but (literally) backing up their every word. ;c; It concerns me that things may be edited out as this network seems to be wording things as though it is theirs. This documentary was made on the heels of the 2007 pet food recalls by YAP Films and apparently nobody in the US would touch it. Not even Public television, which was also approached! :-k:-O:-#; (Dr. Hodgkins was a higher-up for both Hill's and Purina earlier in her career; has the patent on d/m wet food but has since discovered the protocol for getting diabetic cats into remission (and prevent it altogether!)and recommends better foods.)
