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.
My wife's cat is mourning her loss by urinating on our bed. How can I stop this??
This began when we had to be gone a lot for hospital stays. If we were gone overnight, he would pee on her side of the bed. Our final hospital stay lasted just over a month, and our cat (Boots) stayed with a friend where he didn't have any problems going outside his litter box, even with a new litter, so I don't think it is a litter or health issue.
Now that my wife has passed, and the cat is back, I have been using the litter that our friend was using, but the cat pees on our bed at least once per day. A couple of times while I was in it.
Boots often sits on my lap in the evenings for a couple of hours (in between getting up to take care of the kids), so I am giving him as much attention as I am able.
Although I am not particularly a cat person, I don't want to get rid of the cat because the kids just lost their mother, and don't need to loose their cat too. But if this doesn't stop, he's going back to live with our friends who were taking care of him before.
