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.
Hi everyone! I'm new to the forum. My husband and I have two cats we adopted a week apart from the shelter a few months ago. Ever since we got them we've fed them in a gravity feeder and waterer on the kitchen counter (we have a section that's kind of off to itself...not where we store or prepare food of course). We have a toddler and so I can't put the food on the floor bc he's just spill it all and water as well. Where else could we feed them?? I hate feeding them on the counter bc it's gross. They jump up on all the counters since they're used to eating on one. In our bathroom the counter isn't wide enough either and I thought about on the floor in the bathroom, with a baby gate up, but I mean would you want to eat in a bathroom? No. My mom feeds her cats on the dryer but one of mine is scared of everything and would probably not do that. Ideas??? Experiences?? Thanks!
