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.
Help! I keep getting my collar stuck in my mouth!
My mom says that I\'m almost 3 months old and it\'s time to start learning to wear a collar with an ID, even though I don\'t go out. We live in the woods and there are a lot of cats around so she doesn\'t want me to escape and get lost. My problem, I hate the thing! I keep trying to bite the collar off and it gets stuck in my mouth. My mom\'s afraid I am going to strangle myself - and frankly, so am I. She only puts the collar on me for short amounts of time, while she\'s watching me - but I still hate it. She also bought me a harness to see if I can get used to that instead, but guess what, I hate that too. And now I want to eat my ID tag. Am I too young? Or should I just keep trying to get used to it? I go crazy when it\'s on - and then my jaw gets stuck with the collar in my mouth. It\'s a breakaway collar - and she has it on tightly (not too tight), but it still stinks. Any help for my mom? Thanks in advance!!
