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.

My 6 month old kitten always have booger build-up!! She doesn't sneeze often if at all. I wonder if she just sucks at eating in a non-messy way, beccause she also gets food on her nose sometimes. I always have to pick it out because it bothers me and usually its stuck in there pretty good and she puts up a fit when i do it. Her sister (same age) never seems to have the problem. Is this normal/nothing to worry about?

    If she's not showing signs of a cold (sneezing, fever, teary eyes), sounds like she might have some sort of allergies. I would ask the vet about it the next time you go in for anything. Try a damp tissue to clean it so it will be easier on her. I have persians with leaky eyes so I am cleaning tears and eye crust off faces every day. They sit and take it but of course they still hate it. As she gets older, she will also get better at cleaning her face. Mine sit and wash themselves for what seems like hours after they eat.
