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.


How to get my cat to use only her litter box?

Almost a few years back I was having problems with her not using the litter box. She had a UTI and was treated for it. She is the only cat in the household so does not fight for anything. but now all of a sudden after over a year she went right back to using the floor. I have had her checked out for another UTI but has come out negitive from 2 different vets. I have also got her x-rayed to see if it was stones but still negative. All in all she is in absolutely perfect health. I have not changed to a diffent litter or moved her litter boxes. She does like her litter box clean so do clean it every day. She has 2 litter boxes in two seperate locations not out in the open. Now when I got her as a kitten she was not litter trained and had to teach her to use it but she did pretty good at learning to but could that have a factor in this problem? I do not have carpet floors so no soil spots from any pets that used to be here. What can I do?
