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.

So, my kitten (like 9 months old) likes going outside and we let him out because he never leaves the backyard even when left alone. The thing is he acts feral when we let him out: hissing at anyone that gets close to him , tries to attack you if you get close enough to actually pet him, acts really skittish around us, tries attacking you if you pick him up, etc He doesn't act "nice" and let us pick him up until he is bored of the outside but that's rare since he usually hisses at us until he is inside again where he finally lets us cuddle him. I'm just confused about why he is like that when he is let outside? He only acts like that when he is near a door or outside. :(
