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.

    Although your intentions are very honorable, it's difficult to perform a rescue like this unless you have resources with an animal shelter or rescue organizations. If I were in your situation, I would call an animal welfare group and explain what's going on. All organizations right now are blasted with cats and kittens, but if you agree to "foster" this little family without asking to take up space in their shelter or foster homes, I know they'd be more than willing to help with advice and perhaps even traps. Please understand that by rescuing these cats, you are taking responsibility for them. If they are sick, you will be obligated to vet them. Kittens aren't able to be on their own much before 8 weeks or so, and this is a long-term commitment. Then you'll have to go through the adoption process with them. (No "free kitten" signs, please!) I commend you for wanting to help. Just understand what you're getting into...
