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.


Leaky butt!

Let me start by saying my cat has been seen by a vet and nothing is physically wrong with her. That being said, she has a leaky butt! She's on a high-quality no grain food (Dick Van Patten's Limited Ingredient) but seems to suffer from a leaky anal gland. It's not an all the time thing but every so often for a few weeks she will smell absolutely awful. You can smell the leakage on her hind quarters and she will sometimes leak on furniture or blankets. Does anyone have any tips for dealing with this? I wash her back end every time she smells (it will gag you) and she absolutely hates it. Neither of us are very happy with this problem! Thanks!
