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.


Cat Marking & Peeing

I have two spayed male cats who have been living together for ca. 1 year. they've progressively been getting along worse with one of the cats bullying the other cat (e.g. biting, pushing him out of whichever place the other cat has chosen to rest in). he also has started spaying all over the house six months ago and even peed on the carpet, furniture, and our bed. we religiously clean up after him with enzymatic cleaners. we've taken him to the vet and ended up getting feliway, cat attract litter, urinary tract health cat food, and even anti-depressant drugs. the latter he refused and when we tried to trick him into eating it he wouldn't touch food for a good day in distrust. ironically we had to stop the other cat from eating the same meds. as you can see we're somewhat exasperated and are not sure what else we can do. we don't want to loose him, but also can't clean up cat pee every other day. help!

    Is there something else going on in your household that your cats don't like? It is pretty strange for two neutered males who have been living together for a year to suddenly start peeing and spraying all over the house! Try providing each cat with his own litter box. Show them where the new one is and keep the litter boxes VERY CLEAN! Some cats will not do #1 and #2 in the same litter box. If you have to, try a third litter box. See what happens, but this certainly sounds like a behavior issue rather than a medical one. If the problem continues, take both cats to the vet and have blood work done on both. Best of luck.
