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.
My cat(s) keep urinating in the entryway to my house. I don't know how to stop it.
I have two cats. A few months ago one or both of them started eliminating in the entry way to my house. I have a split level house, sort of, where there is a mud room at the bottom, then stairs to the main floor, then stairs to the upper level. They have had a litter box on the upper level (their "room", the laundry, with the litter box and their food dishes) and another litter box on the main floor behind a couch.
Up until a couple of months ago it hadn't been a problem. When it started I treated the area with Nature's Miracle and some Urine-Away spray I got from the vet. When that didn't stop I put a small litter box down there, then they started eliminating in or outside of it. However this made the whole house smell terrible so I started slowly moving the box. They responded by "going" right back where they used to. I don't know what to do. They are slowly destroying that area.
