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.

    If you applied it right, just between the shoulder blades, they should not be able to get at it except on each other. And even then, once it dries, it should not be a problem. As long as you used the kind meant for cats, it doesn't contain a pesticide that is toxic to cats. They should be safe although the smell does bother my dog so I imagine their sensitive little noses won't like it either. I wouldn't be too worried unless they start to act funny. Shaking, drooling, lethargic, etc. If so then you should call the vet. But as long as it was Frontline for cats and not just some Hartz junk from Wal Mart you shouldn't need to be worried.

    DO make sure to keep an eye on them. If they continue to act strangely, see your vet. I (the human) had a bad allergic reaction to the Frontline that had been applied to a cat I adopted, and it's pretty potent stuff. But, it works. Just keep an eye on them for the time being--you know your cats better than anyone else, and will be able to tell if they are exhibiting odd behavior.
