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.
So, mom has been doing hours and hours of reading about all the good and bad things to feed me - and especially to help me safely loose weight. I haven\'t had any dry food in about 2 weeks, and mom is working on switching me from Friskies canned cat food to a better quality, and I THINK she is looking at ordering some raw food from Feline\'s Pride or Hare-Today.
One of the things mom read said something about us cats needing water WITH our food - one reason why dry is so bad for us. Now, me, I\'ve been a water drinker from the beginning. Also, I\'ve always eaten both dry AND wet cat food.
Oh, first I have to say that mom doesn\'t tell all this \"stuff\" to dad because he wouldn\'t understand any of it. So, today, dad says to mom, \"I\'ve been noticing that Shadrach isn\'t drinking very much water these days - is that OK or is there something wrong?\" :-O Mom just smiled and explained to him how we need water WITH our food and that the dry was actually dehydrating me so I had to drink lots of water! And that this was just one of the reasons they stopped feeding me the dry food!!
How cool is that?!?!?!?~a~
