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.

Advise for a cat with asthma? Currently treating w/steroid shot every few months. He also has med-controlled seizures. Flovent is SO expensive! Am going to try homeopathic med first.

    Since your kitty has the double-whammy of both asthma and seizures, I would be extremely cautious before engaging in a treatment for one condition that may negatively affect the other. I know that sometimes vets are so concerned with finding the best treatment for a pet, they forget that someone's got to foot the bill for it, namely the owner. I have 5 animals now and with them and past pets, have needed smelling salts at the reception desk when I was given the bill. But, because I have a good relationship with my vets, they did work out a payment plan for us with no problem. Perhaps there is a generic medication that might work?
