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.
Issues with my male going on 3yr old cat
I adopted him with another kitten when they were about 8 weeks it could have been 7 even. And he was always a rough player and I just thought " Oh it's kitten play. " but as the years have gone by he is more rough to the point where the female cat just screams, yowls, growls, and hisses at him. She hates the male cat with a vengeance, anytime he comes near her it's not long before she will jump or move away to a new spot. She can be laying down sleeping and all of a sudden he will just pounce her and bite. And at times they can be calm but then it's like at a drop of a hat the male cat will go nuts. They are both Dom Shorthairs as far as I can tell, he is black and the female is a tabby. And he has this horrible habit of dumping over the water fountain and spilling it which I thought I broke but he still does it every now and then. It's very stressful and I would hate to do this but I'm getting to the point of wanting to rehome him because of how he picks on the female cat. He can play gently with her doing the pinning but after a while, he will get rough and then she starts growling and I think it's unfair to the female cat to have to be in a home where she doesn't feel safe because she is in fear of the male cat pouncing her.
