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.

Petco now carries Nature's Variety (canned and dry), and I wanted to pass along that there's a 15% off sale until October 22. And the regular prices on the canned foods are actually better than I've seen elsewhere (this is surprising because normally I've found the chain stores to be pricer). All the NV Instinct canned foods were priced at $1.59 for the 5.5 oz cans, and on sale for $1.35. Instinct includes about 6 different protein options: Chicken, Lamb, Rabbit, Beef, Venison and Duck. I think I've seen the rabbit and other more unusual proteins for over $2.00 a can at other stores, so right now I think Petco has some good prices for a good quality canned food. |^| P.S. I see that there's some info about the NV sale in another thread. I just thought I'd start a thread to let everyone know because it seems like a really good deal! :D We chowed down on the NV canned food ~ yummy!

    Hiya Hunter and Zoey! :-h Yay, glad to share the info. We're excited to start eating more of the NV canned food. Mom picked it up occasionally before, but it was usually too expensive, but now we're going eat more of it since we found it at Petco and the prices are better. Mom thinks it's cool too that they have all the six different varieties there - other stores usually only have a couple varieties. Though I have to say, we tried the Venison this morning and my sis and I weren't as excited about that one. Rabbit was yummy and I'm excited to try the Lamb. Chicken is always good too. Happy eating! |^| I do wonder why they put artichokes in this food. We are cats after all. :n:

    Hey there Sammy! :-h Hope you like the Nature's Variety canned food! I like it, but now Mom thinks the phosphorus content of the NV food is a little high for my older kidneys (food chart and info from Tanya's CRF site, click here). Oh well, I guess I won't be getting a lot of it, but my sis likes it and she'll still get some. Has your mom ever tried Merrick canned food? Some of those are favorites of ours. We like Thanksgiving Day Dinner, Cowboy Cookout and Grammy's Pot Pie. They sound good and they are! Just thought I'd mention those cuz I really like them. Happy eating and I hope you're doing well! :B

    So far, so good =; We devoured a can of NV's Lamb this morning, it was quite yummy! Three of us really liked it, Luke is the only one who sniffed it and walked away :)) We have also tried Merrick's Thanksgiving Dinner and Grammy's Pot Pie and sometimes we eat the entire can, other times we barely touch it. Mom is quite perplexed as to why we sometimes love a certain food and other times we barely touch it. She rotates our food so we don't get tired of eating the same thing, but we still can be quite picky at times. We bought one can in every flavor of the NV Instincts, so paws crossed that we like some more of them |^|
