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.


I Don't Want a Litter Box on the Stove...

I don't quite know what to do with this situation and we've had cats furever. Chii is an elderly munchkin and Boo is just old and squirrely. We have litter boxes in the basement and one in a hidden corner of the living room. The other cats are younger and bigger and do their business in the litter box or in the backyard if they get out. Boo and Chii never go outside. Chii because of her bitty legs can barely leap off the counter and back up. The kitchen has a big connection of shelves and counters plus the stove and a short jump to the dining table. The dogs scare Chii and Boo because they act afraid. The big kitties wack the dogs in the snoot or plant a few claws in their butts and the dogs run for cover. Boo and Chii don't know it's that easy. So they've taken to using the windowsill, sometimes the stove top as a litter box...Suggestions??? It's a commercial sized stove so taking it apart to clean is really!
