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.

The Animal Behavior Clinic at the Tufts Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine is searching for Birman cat owners to participate in a research project on oral compulsive behavior. Dr. Nicholas Dodman is the director of the study. You may have heard of him from Animal Planet, Dateline, the Today Show or one of his several bestselling books. Study participation does not require a veterinary visit. For additional information on our project, please see the following website: (If the link doesn't direct you to the exact page, please select "Clinical Specialty" and then "Behavior.")
