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.


Still Blue Eyes?

MY cousin's friend's neighborer's cat got pregnant when someone broke into the house and she got out through the window. She had three kittens, and I was over there two days after they were born. Two were both solid slivery gray and one was born slivery gray and white with slightly darker points ( ears, nose, feet, and tail). I was over there again last night, The kittens are now around 3 1/2 months old. The two solid kittens eyes have changed to a cooper color, but the pointed kitten - whose points have become real dark gray - eyes are still blue. Mom's eyes are a light amber. I have always thought that it took two blue eyed cat parents to make blue eyed kittens, and that pointed kittens were always born solid white and the points came in over time. Either I have never known what I have been talking about, or this kitten has defied genetics? If had the monetary means to do this kitten right, I would have taken him home ~ LOL!

    Blue eyes are a recessive gene, so both parents need to possess the recessive trait in order for the gene to become dominant in any of their offspring. Cheers ^_^
