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.
Somebody peed on my mattress! Now what do I do?
This is not a behavioral issue--I don't know which of my cats did it, but I suspect Spike, who likes to mark things from time to time (and no, he doesn't have a urinary infection). I was stupid enough to put off buying a rubber sheet when I bought a new bed a few months ago. Now it has a nice, stinky, yellow stain. I don't know why someone decided to leave their mark--no one ever peed on my previous bed. Does anyone have any idea about how I can get the stain and odor out so that it won't bother me? (Yes, I know that the cats will still be able to smell it, but if I buy a new bed, chances are that somebody will then mark it, too.) Oh, and the mattress can't be turned upside down to hide the scene of the accident.
