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, www.catster.com 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 18-month-old neutered male has started mounting our two other cats. They hate it; how can I get h
Sammy, age 18 months, was neutered at 6 months. In the last few weeks, he has started mounting his 2-year-old cat "sister" and 11-month-old cat "brother." They're both a lot bigger than he is (by 2 to 5 pounds) and get angry when he does this. It usually leads to a lot of snarling, flipping and chasing, often late at night. Before this, they all got along pretty well. He used to curl up with our female cat to nap, but now she doesn't trust him. I worry that this behavior could lead to an honest-to-goodness fight, and he is so small, he could get hurt. How can we discourage this behavior, since he doesn't seem to get the message from his fellow cats?
