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, www.catster.com 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.

Cheers,
Catster

    Fleas are insidious little suckers. They can live in carpets and elsewhere for two months with no sustenance. Or when younger they can hibernate for a year. It's often recommended that furniture or items you suspect may be housing fleas to be thrown out.

    Does your kitty sit by an open window? Depending on how bad they are in your area, an infested squirrel that's right outside the window where your kitty is sitting can transfer a flea (or a billion) to your cat in no time. You could have also had contact with an animal that has fleas and carried them into your home and to kitty.
