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.


Does anyone have a Top Cat (sisal) or Purrfect Post scratching post? I don't know which one to get--

    Both models look great. Lots of cats like sisal I would probably get the covered base too. You may want to provide a couple acceptible scratching options. I have a nice (expensive) sisal post (Smart Cat Ultimate Scratching Post and won't use it. I like (cheap) cardboard scratchers. Mom wishes she had know I had cheap taste earlier!

    Linus is right--whatever your cat prefers is what you should stick with. I get the corrugated cardboard things that have the little pack of catnip in them and are replaceable and my cats LOVE them. Catnip seems to attract the cats to the scrachting post and keep them there. BTW--your cat is BEAUTIFUL!!
