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.


Can the food be causing this???

Our cats have been having very runny and watery poo lately and we were giving them taste of the wild for about a year. I know sometimes the food makers make changes and do not say anything for awhile to the public. I think they might of done something cause we noticed the food had a smell that was now wayy stronger than before. Soon after noticing the stronger odor of the food, the cats started having the runny poo's. And VERY strong smelling. We switched over to EVO and sometimes its better, but alot of times is still very runny. They have been on the EVO a week now and I know it takes time. Have any of you had issues with your cats going thru times when their poo does this? If so, what steps were taken in case its not the food?

    Selby always had a sensitive tummy, regardless of what she ate, and in my experience even Matty tends to regurgitate sometimes after we switch foods. I guess it's possible that a food switch could cause runny poo. You hear about it with dogs all the time. If I were in your shoes, I'd try to switch to another premium food for a week or so, and if no improvement is visible, it may be time for a vet visit to get the input of a professional kitty-doctor. Best of luck!
