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.


how do I get my kitty to start pooping in litter box again?

I have 8 yr old kitty that always used litter box to poop until recently, now uses floor. (2mo) Took to vet, he is fine, vet said behavior issues but offered no solution. Uses box to pee. No changes in his or our routines. Very clean litter, no changes in box. Clean floor after he soils very good. He has always been very close to me and I have been under a lot of stress due to family health issues. (2mo) What can I do to get him back to using box? Please help, thanks in advance.
