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.
e-collar for a cat?! WHAT?! *kind of a rant*
So I work at a local Petco. I love working there, the staff at my Petco is always there to be the pets advocate.
Well the other day I was directed to the e-collar display case because someone wanted one. I just thought, "Yay, another person I can turn away from e-collars, and maybe get them into a training class."
so when I went over to help this gentleman I find out that he actually wants this e-collar for his cat, because she is peeing on the floor. WHAT?! I was shocked. I sat there and told him it was a bad idea and tried to help him figure out why the cat was acting out but it went in one ear and out the other, all he could say is "I've done my research and I know it works. So which one comes with a collar?"
Eventually I told him that if he wanted an e-collar he would have to go to another store because I was not going to sell him one.
Apparently the guy complained to the manager but the manager stood up for me and told the guy the same thing I did.
Holy cow this makes me not like people. If you're thinking this way you just shouldn't have an animal period.
