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.


Foster cat keeps bitting me????

Ok so I have a one year old foster cat which is expecting babies like any min but the problem is she has attacked me 3 times in the week I have had her. The first time I had her on my lap and I wanted up and she didn’t want me to get up so she grabbed my hand with her front paws and bit down on my hand very very hard. I had to go to the walk in clinic as it was very swollen and bleed a lot and got antibiotics. The second time I went to put water in her bowl she walked up to me and scratched me below my eye and then today I was patting her very soft and when I went to get up she got mad a grabbed my other hand in her mouth. I am afraid for my kids safety and my own around her but I don’t want to send her back to the pound I am fostering her from. Could this behaviour be from her being pregnant????. I do not maul her nor do my children that are 11 and over and she is my 5th foster mommy cat in 3 years and I never had a cat act this way before. Thank you Tina
