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.


Will she ever adjust?

Last month I took in a cat who needed to be rehomed. Her name is Jo-Jo and she was originally adopted at 8 weeks and was a single cat. Now she has to share a home with my other two female cats Lena and Pepi. Things are OK with Lena, but Pepi thinks she has a new friend. She loves to be in Jo-Jo's room and sit in a chair while Jo-Jo is in her crate. When she does come out she growls and hisses at Pepi. Pepi has been known to be an annoying pain at times so I'm not sure if she's intentionally giving JoJo a bad time or if she's just being herself and likes being near JoJo. But about every day I hear JoJo make cat-fighting sounds when Pepi gets too close. It doesn't last long and Pepi leaves soon enough. This is wearing me down. I'm not sure if Pepi will ever learn to leave JoJo alone or if JoJo will ever learn to live with other cats. I hope it's the latter because "her" room heats up too much and I'd like to close it off. More importantly I want JoJo to feel free to move about her own freely and not worry about the other cats.
