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.
Post de-adoption question
About two months ago I took in what I thought was a stray kitten. I named her Scout, but about two weeks ago while I was taking her on a walk (I leash-trained her) her original family saw her and demanded me to give her back to them. Long story short, I ended up giving her back and crying for a week afterwards. I brought up the fact that there was no collar, no microchip, no one looking for her, not even a lost cat sign to indicate that she belonged to anyone. Now she comes and sits outside my window all day long, every day. I have no idea if she's going back to her original family for food or water. She has also started to use the dirt beds around the my apartments as a litter box. I have not seen them come looking for her, and I don't know if they will do anything different if I bring her to them again. I don't know how to get her to go to her home, she just keeps following me back to my home, wandering around the apartments, and sitting outside my window. I don't know what to do.
