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.
For those of you that are not aware - it might be of interest to you to know that HQ has taken it upon themselves to throw our beloved Inky & Sparkle off of Catster. It started on Dogster with Rosie the Chi - the entire family is now being removed.
I left the forums some time ago for a reason similiar to this... I reappeared for Rosie. I have been keeping up with my pals via rosettes/pmails and pretty much avoiding the forums entirely.... for reasons such as this.
I do not know what happened - at all. I pmailed Rosie last night and she told me she was being kicked off - she did not say why... and I did not read the PLUS thread... I do not need to.
Rosie is always there for people that need her with comfort and advice. You might not like some of her opinions - but so what? STOP THE PRESSES - The world is NOT a perfect place - disagreements & debates happen.
She apologised... let it go for kitties sake. A punishment of this capacity is completely unacceptable. The threat of doing so alone is unacceptable. You likely think that you are making an example out of her... in reality you are making fools out of yourselves. GROW UP. This is not very Dogster/Catster like behavior.... you are being hypocrits.
HQ - what are you thinking? I would seriously reconsider this decision. If Rosie and her family are not allowed back - I for one will never renew my Dogster Plus subscription.
Taking a family away from this community that is as well loved as that family is here is an error in judgement that you may live to regret.
It is a sad day for Dogster. We love you, Ro. Please Catsters - tag a pic with 'Free Rosie' and show your support for her.
no hugs no kisses
Just Rosie and her family.
