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.

    It really depends on the 2 cats involved. When you go to adopt a cat, speak with the staff at the shelter or rescue. They know their kittens/cats and can place one with you who will accept an 'older brother'. Do not impulse adopt just because you see a kitten who is "cute" (they all are) or you like the markings/color of the cat. You need to have the shelter staff recommend a kitten for you and your resident cat. There is no reason why it shouldn't work as long as you handle the introductions right (the shelter staff can also help you there)and you pick the right kitten. Good luck and let us know how it turns out!
