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 6 week old kitten is sneezing. He was tired yesterday morning but very playful last night and to

I don't want to ignore a problem but i dont want to overreact and run to the vet. He is sneezing only about 4 to 6 times a day since Thursday. His dad thinks its usually after he eats and maybe because he sticks his entire head in the food bowl, but I'm not sure. He was very sleepy Sunday morning, but bucked up that night and today. I googled kitten sneezing and read a little about URI. He had loose stool sunday morning but it was back to normal last night. Doesn't seem to have runny nose or eyes.

    Upper respiratory infections can be deadly to a very young kitten such as yours. It is one of the leading causes of kitten mortality. With the holiday coming up on Thursday, I honestly would not wait. At least call your vet and ask if they want to see him. URIs can get much worse very quickly.
