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.
Is it bad for an old cat to get pregnant? Will her kittens survive?
I am a first class cat lover. I have 19 cats! I have a LaPerm, a Siberian, a Burmese, a Devon Rex, 3 Moggies, 4 Korat cats, 5 Havana Brown cats and 8 Snowshoe cats. I used to live in a very large apartment in San Francisco, where I'm from, but recently I moved to a large house in Santa Barbara. My cats were all used to apartment living so I closed all the doors of the house so they wouldn't run away and forget the way back. But this one day, one of my oldest cats, a 13 year old Siberian called Missy, a 5 year old Devon Rex called Dino and my 8 year old LaPerm called Marylin ran away due to an open door. Dino and Mary (Marylin's nickname) came back after some hours but Missy didn't. I put posters all around the town but nobody called back. Then, 13 days later, in the supermarket parking lot, I found her together with some other street cats. She was so filthy and full of fleas! So I took her to the vet. There, they told me she was pregnant! So what do I do? Sincerely, Jacqueline Taylor
