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.


Meowing nursing cat = sleep deprivation. Please help!?!?

Months ago I started feeding a local stray cat. She was super friendly and really pregnant and really thin. So of course out of love for animals I started to feed this stray cat. Weeks later I heard a kitten cry. She had her kittens in the laundry room under the boiler. I left her kittens there for a bit as I knew that's where they would get the best heat resource and also hidden away from my neighbors (I live in a apartment complex) who hate cats. Now I just recently moved the 5 week kittens into my room, just this past Tuesday. Only because I heard the kittens cry and seen them walking out underneath the boiler. They are super friendly and are getting adjusted to wet food and how to use the litter box. So they are in the weaning process. Well the reason I am sleep deprived is that after 1 night in my room, mother cat would cry to go outside, since she's used to being outside. So I let her out. Minutes later, she cries yet again to come back in. And this goes on from around 9 pm till 5 am :-'''( Please any help will greatly be appreciated. I need my sleep.
