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.

My cats are eating an all chicken homade diet. I am slowly getting them use to "chunks" so they can chew there food more. Tiny is getting on bord with chucks faster, and i noticed is being more vocal while she is chewing up her chicken parts. She also likes to drag peices out of her bowl, meow, then eat them. do any of your cats do this? they didnt do this with canned food.

    I see this a LOT with my fosters if I let them try BK's raw chunks or bones. Has she growled at all? I have a young male right now who has never hissed or growled at the other cats until this morning. I had tossed him some leftover rabbit and he turned into a tiger! Whenever anyone approached he'd start growling - with the meat in his mouth. It was very funny. And yes, there's something about raw food that makes them want to take it out of the plate. Something primal I guess!

    oh they allways growl at eatchother if they get to close. ever since they were kittens. when they were kittens they would growl and eat at the same time and it sounded SO funny. "num num num num num mmmrrrrrrrrrrmmmmmm num num" they would also slam there paws down at eacthother and send canned food everywhere.

    My foster kittens LOVE the chicken homemade. they will zoom right out of there "room" (there seperated from the rest) before i can grab them, they pushed out the adults and inhale the chicken.
