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.


Male cats try to mate with my male cat.

First some background. BW is our outdoor cat. Ever since he was born he was small and sickly. He is now grown (still small)and healthy. But he never leaves the yard. He never goes tom catten around. The problem is that every male around comes over and gets on top of him trying to mate. When we bring him into the house even our male neutered cat get on top and tries to mate. What gives?

    I know dogs mount each other in a bid for dominance (regardless of gender) but I haven't really heard much about this behavior happening in cats. Perhaps, due to his small size, this is the reasoning behind it? Sorry I can't be of more help!
