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.

    This sounds like an emergency. You need to take your cat to an emergency vet NOW. You did not post many details so I do not know why you think this but if your cat is having any difficulties breathing or any other symptoms, she needs to see a vet ASAP. Even if your cat isn't showing any outwardly symptoms, contact the emergency vet now. Some insulation is made with fiberglass- that would be horrible and life-threatening to have stuck in your throat. I am very, very concerned for your cat. There is no way that someone reading your post on the internet is going to be able to help you or your cat with this situation. Please contact an emergency vet NOW (hopefully, you already have).

    Go to the vet. Go to the vet. Go to the vet. Go to the vet. Go to the vet. Go to the vet. Go to the vet. Go to the vet. Go to the vet. Sink in yet? There are some things you can ask online about (frequent hairball, a picky cat when it comes to food, weird behavior), but eating foreign objects is not one of those things you wait on. If your vet is closed, don't wait until Monday. Find a hospital or emergency vet that is open on Sundays and take that kitty in.
