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 was just wondering if anyone else's cat liked jumping onto shoulders? Olivia spends probably 3 hours a day on mine or someone else's shoulders. She just jumps right up and lays down. lol she never scratches or anything, she just likes the height maybe? anyone else have a cat like this?

    Mine all did that when they were babies but fortunately outgrew it as they became adults. You're lucky Olivia is a small kitty because I can't imagine it would be much fun with my Chelsea who is 9 1/2 pounds. Right now, only the baby, Blaze likes to sit on shoulders. She also nuzzles up into my neck up against my face to take a nap while I watch tv and sleep next to my head on my pillow at night. Another little trick that won't be much fun when she gets bigger. MOL It's nice that Olivia likes her people so much that she wants to ride on their shoulders.

    Howie has always loved to sit on shoulders. When he was a teeny baby he'd curl up with his head pressed against my cheek. Now that he's a big guy, he'll drape around my neck like a shawl. He'll hang on, purring like mad, while I putter around the house, and will grab onto my shirt if I try to pull him off. I think cats like to see the world as their special humans do. :-)

    We don't any more but Mom saw a guy at Petsmart walking around with his cat on his shoulders. It was an amazing thing to see. You don't usually see cats at Petsmart anyway and this one wasn't contained in any way.

    We have two cats from the same litter and our girl cat is OBSESSED with riding on our shoulders. The minute we get home she starts crying and then jumps up onto the counter and starts hopping up on her 2 back feet to show us she wants to get on our shoulders. All we have to do is slightly bend forward and she hops right on. Once she's up there she goes right to work rubbing her face all over our shoulders, neck and face. She will stay up there for a good twenty minutes, sometimes longer, before we nudge her off. We are glad to hear that other cats out there are just as strange as our little Bast.
