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.
My cat is a little too thin! She's a wonderful Persian, and she goes to the vet every few months or so. My vet has mentioned that she's on the very small size, for her breed and her body type. He has said that she needs to gain weight. However, he has yet to offer any suggestions. Do you have any ideas?
Complicating the issue is that she has IBS. I know, right?!? She eats Science Diet, Sensitive Stomach. And, she seems to have a second sense about whether something will make her sick or not. She won't eat chicken, tuna, or fish. She turns up her nose at wet food. When she is tempted by treats, she usually has diarrhea later. She seems okay with greenies. Any ideas?
The solution needs to be easy on the stomach, but high calorie. It would be great if it would work with her regular food, as she seems to like it already!
