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.
Problems litter training my 10 week old kitten
This is probably a tired question but I'm starting to get a little desperate. I've had my recently adopted kitten for about two weeks now. For the first week we had her confined to a small room and she was perfect about using the litter box. Now I have moved into a small apartment where she has free reign while keeping the same litter box (and same type of litter) in our walk in pantry, a place she always has access to. What I don't understand is she now uses the entire apartment as her toilet, only going back to the box by force or on random whims I have yet to figure out. Even if I set her inside the box, she will still jump out and purposely wait to go on the carpet. Since I can't supervise her at night, I've tried confining her to the pantry. She still would rather poo in the corner instead of the litter box right next to her! I can't really move the box to another room because the apartment is so small. I'm at a bit of a loss because she does use the litter box SOMEtimes.
