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.

    First things first: is he fixed? Neuturing him will ease the hormones telling him to 'mark'. Overall fixing him will help him in the long run. Secondly: is his litterbox scooped daily? I was once given a scenario that put scooping litterboxes into perspective for me. "Do you enjoy peeing/popping in an unflushed toilet"? I find the thought of using the restroom that's full of other waste repulsive; and so do cats. Thirdly: any environmental stressers? New pet, baby, smells? Cats are finicky and don't like change. I suggest adding Feliway plug ins. They work wonders to calm antsy kitty cats
