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.
Licking area alot, possibly food related?
My cat Tigger had been licking both his hind legs off & on for a few months causing hair loss. Took him in & they gave him an antibiotic shot & another to reduce swelling 6 months ago. It resurfaced again recently and 3 weeks ago they gave him the same 2 shots again and it went away really fast, but just started again, licking the area again . The vet said it could be an allergic reaction to the food he is eating. We used to feed our cats Felidae but they refused to eat it once they changed the formula. So they have been on Wellness indoor cat formula since.
Vet said we might want to try a food that is an
Hypoallergenic food. What are some good ones? Are there test to do before jumping right into these foods? Thanks for any help.
