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.
6 month old will not stop eating!
I'm concerned about Misty becoming overweight. I have been happy that she has such a ferocious appetite because she has really blossomed into a beautiful strong girl, but now it seems to be going over board. She will eat absolutely anything i put in front of her and now i have to seperate her from my 3 month old kitten Rocky because she will finish her food and then bully him away from his bowl. Its also hard to tell how fat she is, cus theres so much fluffy fur! I can feel her ribs and back bone, but there is a very good layer of fat covering them. Perhaps a bit too much of a layer.
She was getting 2 wet foods a day(1 kitten and 1 adult) with dry all day in between (Eukanuba kitten) and table scraps occassionally. I thought that maybe she would let me know when she's had enough, but she does not seem to have any self control or cut off point.
Been 6 months of age, would this be a good time to get her off kitten food, or would she still need it? And should i cut 1 of her daily wet meals out of her diet? I'm not exactly sure what the best option is at this age.
