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.


I have two cats, 11 and 6. I just got a 2 month kitten, how can I get them to get along?

    Kittens are generally pretty fearless and their behavior can be intrusive for older cats to tolerate. But they usually work it out amongst themselves and find their peaceful place in the house. Kittens are often easier to introduce to other cats in the house than another adult would be. Just make sure that the first introductions are done slowly and are supervised. Don't leave them alone in the house without separating the kitten until you see everybody getting along. Keep toys available to distract the kitten if you see it bothering the older kitties. I have gotten several kittens in the last year and a half and we usually have some growling and hissing for a few days and then the big girls either start to act like they are mothering it and help care for it or else just try to ignore it and get on with their normal lives. Good luck and enjoy your new baby!
