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.
Affordable Food To Lose Weight?
My cats are fat. We had been free feeding because Tequila always had problems keeping weight on, but now that she's gone, I'm starting a feeding schedule to get the other two's weight down. We've been feeding Special Kitty dry food for hairball control (the cats tend to get terrible hairballs). It's pretty much the cheapest food.
I don't have a lot of money, especially this month, to spend on cat food. But since we're not free feeding now, I suspect it'll start lasting longer. Are there any affordable cat foods - preferably dry; Twitch isn't fond of wet food and will only eat it if he's really hungry - in Canada that will help them lose weight and keep them healthy?
Mockqua is a senior, but Twitch isn't. Is it okay to feed them both the same food? Or should I be getting senior food for one, and normal food for the other?
Also, I'm in Canada. So the food has to be available in Canada.
