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.

    No he won't be OK, he'll probably die if he has to wait til Monday. Don't let him suffer, you need to figure out how to get him to a vet ASAP.

    Kittens go downhill very quickly. I would absolutely recommend you get this kitten to a vet as soon as possible. Can you borrow money from friends or family? If you are an adult, can you apply for Care Credit? Ask your vet if they will accept a payment plan, or take a cheque dated for Monday's date. See if your local shelters have any kind of low cost treatment available. If you can't do any of this, you may have to look at surrendering your kitten, so he can get the treatment he deserves, or at least be put out of his pain in a humane manner. Also, you should know that failure to seek out veterinary attention can result in animal cruelty charges, depending on where you live. It is imperitave that you get your kitten to the vet as fast as humanly possible.

    SOunds like hes constipated and he might not pass it himself, he needs to see a vet. The hardened stool will block him and the liquid will come out because he has to go but cant.
