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.

Ok, i have a kitten, a few weeks old and she's not eating! I've tried giving her kitten food and she wont eat it. THIS IS URGENT! She wont even eat her mother's milk! ... I've tried making her kitty food wet, putting her near her mother, and even hand feeding her kitty formula milk. I'm becoming desprate! She's loosing weight fast and is becoming sleepy. I think she might die! PLEASE HELP! my granny might be right when she said that not all of them are garenteed to live... Somebody help

    You are right! This is URGENT! Please take the kitten to a vet where she can be treated. If you don't get her to a vet today, she won't make it. Kittens are like human babies, once they become dehydrated, their chances of survival are slim. The less body weight they have, the less their chance for survival. Tell your parents (or your granny) that they need to get you and your kitten to the vet ASAP! Please don't wait. I wish you all the best and hope your new kitten gets better real soon.

    if its urgent, why are you relying on a message board to give you answers instead of a vet?
