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.
Malice is very upset about new kittens arrival
Malice is 5 years old and has lived on her own with me and my family since she was 8 weeks old. We have just introduced a new kitten into the home and she is not a happy kitty. Although not the most social of animals when it comes to strangers she does love to play with me and my boyfriend. As she is still kitten like so we decided that bringing a kitten into the home rather than an adopted adult was a better option for her. To begin with they were kept seperate but this did not last long as the new addition shouts at the top of his voice when he is put in his own room.
Malice seems happier with him quiet and running around than with him away and shouting however she will not get out of her bed while he is around. She hisses when he goes near her. She also used to hiss at us if we touched her without washing our hands after touching him but this has stopped now which i guess is progress.We make sure that she is fed first, given a fuss first and given treats first.
I know this can be a lengthy process but seeing how upset my baby is, is very distressing to me.
Any advice to make this change easier on Malice?
