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.


Concerned about our 2 cats getting along with 2 older dogs

My in laws are going to California and are leaving next Wednesday (the 23rd) and will be back the following Sunday and asked us watch/take care of their two dogs (both dogs were originally my husbands). Anyway, the dogs are very sweet and well behaved, Kassie I think is 15 and Reimi is 3 almost 4 and both are short small dogs- Reimi is a Imperial Shih Tzu (I think its spelled right) and Kassie is I think some breed of Shih Tzu. But they are both short and small. We have 2 cats that are 9 months, maybe almost 10 months old and they haven't traveled. Plus I'm worried they won't get along with his parents dogs. And I'm not sure how young they have to be to introduce them to other animals (like if 9-10 months is too old) I'm wondering if they have already missed that age range to introduce them to other pets. Advice? Tips? I would really appreciate any help. Please get back to me soon! Thanks!:-k|^|:o)
