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.
I went to the vet yesterday for my annual appointment and the vet said I was overweight and need to lose a few pounds. I weigh 13.12lbs. I don't remember the vet saying what I should weigh but just said I had to lose weight.
My people don't know how to help me even though they read the info on feline obesity from a link on this site. They are confused about what food to feed me.
I currently eat 1/2 cup of Pro Plan Selects Salmon and rice and 1 can of pro plan selects in various flavors every day.
Is there a better brand of food I should be eating? My mommy likes the pro plan because she says it doesn't have any by-products and has less grains/carbs. I started eating pro plan about two months ago. Before that, I was eating Meow Mix indoor 1 cup a day and a special food that helped with urinary tract disorders. My mommy says that I gained weight when I started the special food for urinary tract disorders.
Please help us! I want to make sure I'm fed enough so I'm not cranky but I want to lose weight to keep me healthy! I get at least 20 minutes of exercise with my mommy a day and lots of running around with my brothers and sister.
