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.
Feed healthy without breaking the bank?
I'm interested in how any of you here are able to feed higher quality on a budget. I've recently taken in 2 foster kittens in addition to my own cats, so my cat food expenses have doubled. My own cats were eating mostly grain free wet, however, I've had to cut back a bit out of necessity. The foster kittens have to have dry food because that is likely what they will eat once adopted. I had them eating Wellness Core dry that I had for my cats, but recently switched to Nutro as Wellness was too expensive and it is unlikely that their new families will feed it. They also get a serving of Wellness wet grain free (half of a 12 ounce can split between four one morning, then the other half the next).
I tried to give them something cheaper, but the poo poo stink increased so I went back to Nutro dry and Wellness wet. Any of you have tried cheaper cat food that doesn't stink up the litter box? Both of the fosters (about 4 months) are a little chubby, so I am going to work on portion control this week which will save some money too.
So how much and what do you guys feed to keep healthy cats and stink reduced litter boxes?
