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, www.catster.com 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.
Best grooming product EVER!!!
I recently took my baby to a nearby kitty clinic, and they taught me how to groom her properly. I have been posting questions on here for over a year about how to care for my Flossie's freakishly (4.5 inches) long fur. She is a lovely kitty, but screams and runs away when I try to comb her, and in her case brushing is NOT enough. Since we are all domestic long hair kitty owners, and don't have access to the groom-training offered by breeders of long haired kittens, I think it may be helpful for you to know about this comb.
It's called an undercoat rake...It was developed by people who breed German Shepherds. BUT the great thing about this product is that it removes all of that dead undercoat that causes matts without scratching their skin, or pulling too much.
Miss Flossie loves it as much as her slicker brush, and I get lumps of fur the size of baseballs out of her daily. No more matts, and a happy schmoozie kitty throughout. It's tefflon coated, so tuggs less than the comb. Everyone with some kind of Himmie descendant should really try to find this!
Best wishes to all the fluffy kitties out there!
