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.
Transporting newborn kittens?
I responded to an ad where someone is seeking an immediate home for her momma cat & newborn kittens because they are moving. I'd gladly take them (my husband perhaps not so gladly, but he accepts it :P), the only problem is, we live about 1 hour away.
I asked if they could wait about a week until the kittens are a bit older, but I'm not sure if they can, or if I'm even definitely the lucky candidate, but I'd still like to be prepared, or at least know what to do in the future.
Will the kittens be OK being transported with Mama? What's the best way to do this?
She is a pet and sounds good natured, but I'm also a bit worried that she'll freak out from the sudden change of environment, owner, being moved, etc. I want it to be as smooth a transition as possible.
Can anyone offer me advice on this?
If we get them, they will have their own room away from our cats, so that at least won't be an issue.
