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.

    ????? Usually the place to request friends is under their picture. Go to your kitty friends page and look under their picture. There is a long skinny "button" that says "Send a Feline Friend Request". That will take you to another page that will allow you to send your request. You can choose to send it to one cat or their entire cat family. Write a little something in the box and ask if they would be friends :D Hope this helps. If not Pawmail me with your friends page and I will try to help.

    Catster HQ made some changes to the pages and the friends button is now a bar across the top of the other buttons. If you can't see it you need to clear your cache so you can see the new page properly. If you use Internet Explorer go to Tools, internet options to be able to do that.

    Hmm, that's unusual. Usually a new member is inundated with friend requests by other Catsters. Aside from the other posters' advice, try participating in a Forum or Group--you'll have lots of choices and will probably find a niche that suits you and gives you friends. The "Fake Cats" thread on the "Other Meows and Purrs" Forum is closely bonded, and we always welcome new members. Give it a try.
