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, 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.

Fiona (female) is 5 weeks and Dexter (male) aprox 10 weeks. Since they are both kittens, should I let them play together? Obviously, I am much too big right now to physically play with them. Meowy lets Dexter and I play footsy under the dining room door (glass) we can see one another but can't get to each other.

    At that age they should be absolutely fine. The younger they are when introduced, the easier the introduction will be.

    i agree with amber, the earlier the better! Peanut was about 12 weeks when we got Lucy, who was about 7 weeks. she was sick and MUCH smaller than Peanut so we were a little worried he'd be too rough or playful with her. But they started playing together right away. and when Peanut gets too rough, she lets him know :) i think, with supervision, you should introduce them now
