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.


6yr old spayed female cat has been meowing for two hours every day in the morning. what can i do?

for the past three weeks, my 6 yr old spayed female cat will get up at 6am and walk around the house meowing for two hours straight. i will let her outside but she goes outside then she wants to come back in after ten minutes and begins her meowing again. when my mom tries to let her outside, she just pokes her head out and turns back around. she will stop if i come to her and walk with her but she just lets me follow her around the house then once i leave her and either go back to sleep or to another room, she begins her walk through the house once again meowing. i have no idea why she keeps on meowing because i never had any problem with my 15yr old spayed female cat doing this. she is driving everyone crazy in the mornings. what can i do?

    You may need to do a little research into what went on in your home three weeks ago. Did someone leave? Did you have a lot of guests over the Holidays who may have gotten up at 6AM and fed or played with her? Have you lost another pet or family member recently? Are you aware if there are stray cats or other animals in your yard? (Don't forget that cat's hearing and senses of smell are much more developed than ours) Has anyone's schedule changed? It really sounds like she's looking for something that's not there now or like her routine has changed somehow. Is she meowing at you or just wandering around meowing? You might want to try giving her a little wet food as a treat before you retire for the night just in case she's hungry. If all else fails and she continues to disrupt the household, call your vet for their suggestions.

    Make sure your cat has plenty of food and water. If your cat keeps meowing I would take her to the vet and have them check out what is wrong.
