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.

Mommy works for a vet, and we no longer use/recommend the icky prescription diets, anyways we have a kitty who has Pancreatitis right now and our research is showing avoid carbohydrates for pancreatitis, other shows that low fat high carb, but we know cats don't do well on carbs. Anyways is there a recommendation for a good quality food for someone on a 'fixed' income for a cat with pancreatitis canned and/or dry although we are going to try to convince her to feed canned. Thanks in advance. Oh almost forgot, kitty is 16 years old, and otherwise healthy.

    Hi, there -- Coop's MOm here. My bridge baby, Felix, had pancreatitis, and our vet put him on a diet of venison and pea food. I forget the brand name, but that was to keep everything in check with the pancreatitis. Hope this helps! Coop's Mom

    I mentioned this in your other post, but this book "Your cat" would be really beneficial to you, it has a section in there about Pancreatitis too. You want (Wet food, high protein, low carbs) High carbs will only assault the pancreas more.

    Hi Coopurr! :-h We're guessing the venison/green pea was Natural Balance? They make a good limited ingredient line.
