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.
This past weekend our cat 7 year old cat "Dexter" passed away suddenly. It was such a shock...
He was eating, drinking, and going to the bathroom. We have another cat named "Dirtyâ€ she is around the same age. Needless to say, we can see that she is upset. Usually when we would go away for a few days we left them both plenty of food and water and knew they had each other so we didn't worry. Next week we are going away for a few days and I am feeling worried and guilty for having to leave her alone. We have a dog as well and she will be coming with us. I just worry that it is too much for the cat to have her best friend gone--Then her owners and the little dog (who she has a love/hate relationship with). Am I over thinking this? I know that cats are practical and independent but still change is hard enough on animals. All opinions appreciated. Thanks.....
