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.

    Feliway should be perfectly safe to use around your kids. I would use a diffuser in each of their rooms. Please also make sure that kitty has a clear path to his litterbox and that it is in a place that the puppy will not bother him. Maybe a baby gate in the doorway that kitty can jump but will keep the puppy out. This does clearly sound behavioral if is started when the puppy arived. But if it continues, please see your vet in case he has developed a UTI or other medical problems. He may have been "holding it" to avoid coming in contact with the puppy and may have caused himself a problem of some sort.

    Just to add to Allie's good advice--I got a baby gate with plastic mesh and cut a kitty sized hole in one bottom corner so the cats don't have to jump the gate. All they have to do is pass through the hole. It also keeps the dogs from going on archeological digs in the litter boxes. Make sure no one is hasseling your cats when they use the box. They're telling you something is not going their way by peeing on the beds. And, make sure you wash and bleach the sheets so they won't keep coming back there. (Or close the bedroom doors.)
