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.

The researchers at Tufts University are looking for volunteers to complete a brief survey about feeding practices for dogs & cats. The survey will ask questions about your pet, what food you purchase, how you feed your pet & your relationship with your pet. If you are over 18 & currently have a dog or cat, you can take the survey. Your responses will be kept confidential. I get their newsletter & I thought it would be nice to help them out. Here's the link:

    I took this, but they don't offer an opportunity for comments. They ask question about my relationship with one of my four cats - the one THEY chose to use for the survey - but never give me the chance to explain that he's a former feral whom I cannot even touch. Had they used Althea or Blue, my answers would have been totally different.
