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.
What would you think if your significant other wanted you to have fewer cats?
I know this isn't directly a cat question, but I figured cat lovers would have insightful opinions regarding my situation. My girlfriend and I are in the beginning stages of talking about her moving into my house. I am not a cat person, but I do like her cats. The problem is, she has 4 cats and I think that's too many. In the city we live in, having more than 3 is actually against city ordinance. She is also really interested in turning my house into a giant cat playground like she has seen on youtube videos. Now, I am more than willing to accept her, all 4 of her cats, and some cat furniture into my house, but I eventually want no more than 2 cats and want a "normal" house. Here's my question: What would you think if your S.O. told you they did not want you to replace your cats when they passed until the number was down to 2? As a secondary question, would you be offended if your S.O. told you he wants to live in a house for humans instead of being a guest in a giant cat playground?
