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.

    I have never heard this, but I would consult your veterinarian. Does Inkling have rabies??

    I am not a veterinarian, but I will tell you speaking from my own experience, that my cat developed a vaccine associated cancer from getting too many vaccines in the same area. I researched this and found out that this will only occur in 17 out of every 10,000 cats. Unfortunately, my cat was one of the very few to develop cancer from previous vaccines. The cancer was called "spindle cell sarcoma". I had to have the lump aspirated every month for five months. Ironically, it was chronic renal failure which took my cat's life, not the cancer. I would consult with your veterinarian if you have concerns as to whether or not the rabies vaccine (or any vaccine) cause cancer.
