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.


Kitten Neurological Problems

Male kitten born on 9/11 when he was 2days old he literally jumped out of my daughters hands & landed on his head on concrete. Mama rejected him & his sister who died last wk. Beamer is still bottle fed, & when he walks can take some shakey steps but then ends falling over & rolling. His head bobs all the time & he tries to eat canned cat pate food but he looks like a woodpecker trying to eat it. He can see & hear but he still hasn't used the litter box. His litter mates grew up normal (& huge) I wonder what the quality of life he will have as an older cat, but if he never uses the litter box or eat food I can't be there for him 24/7. I feel so bad for him. My friend who had been a VET Tech for over 15yrs said he prob was born like this thats why Mama rejected him & cats can get preggo at different times, she thinks Beamer is 3 wks behind. He can walks better on carpet than tile floor, but his gait is shakey & then he falls & starts the process of trying to get somewhere.
