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.


My kitten is litter trained but he still poops everywhere. What do I do?

My 1 year old kitten, Mittens, has been acting weird lately. He poops everywhere even though he is litter trained and neutered. The only change that we have had is that my aunt and cousin came 3 days before. They left yesterday, but Mittens is still pooping. I don't think it's because my cousin, because he is only 6 years old. Help!!??

    If Mittens was previously using his box without problems and suddenly stopped, he needs to go to his doc for a check. Take a stool sample along so it can be checked for worms. Also, cats do use their feces to mark their area. If your cousin chased Mittens, or if he was loud and boisterous as boys can be. Mittens may just be weirded out. Praise him when he uses the box. Say nothing when you pick up the poop. Wash the area he pooped with Nature's Miracle to kill the scent.
