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.


What is an easy way to travel across country with a scared cat?

I have a 12yr old cat that we are going to be moving from MN to AZ. He has only been to the vet once and that was when he was a kitten(I know bad). So he is not that used to the car. We did move before from IL to MN but it was only a 6hrs drive and he did howl quite a bit. We are thinking to try and make the drive in one trip with no stops at a hotel so we can keep him in the crate. The crate we have is a large dog crate that we used in the 1st move. My question, what tips do you have to keep him clam for such a long car ride 24hrs , and I really dont want to let him out of the crate until we arrive at our destation, is that a bad thing?
