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.


My cat won't stop peeing on the couch! I'm getting fed up!

My 2 1/2 year old kitty keeps peeing on my couches -- in the same 3 spots. He is healthy as a horse, has clean cat boxes, I wash, spray, and "de-urinize" the spots, but he keeps doing it! I am getting fed up! He is the only cat that does this, what is his PROBLEM??? AHHH!!!

    Delilah pees on my bathroom rug. I finally gave up and stopped putting the rug down. But, you can't very well put your couch in a closet. Is the cat neutered? Are you SURE he doesn't have a bladder infection? I've heard that you can use tin foil on the cushions because the cat doesn't like the feel of it or double sided sticky tape. There's also a device called "SSSCAT" that sprays a puff of air at the cat when it comes near-a motion detector thing. I've seen it at Wal-mart. You might also want to put out more boxes for him. Not exactly stylish, but either in sitting on the sofa in cat pee. Make sure, if you have more cats that they aren't harrassing him. Cats stop using the box for 2 reasons, one is health concerns and the other is stress.
