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 the good news is Mommy found a new awesome house so we can live all together again.
The less good news (in my opinion) is that she wants to make me an indoor only cat, which I have not been since I was a couple weeks old. I absolutely LOATHE litterboxes and outside-trained myself so as to keep my potty business away from the house. Mommy didn't mind this because just smelling cat urine + litter makes her eyes swell up and her face break out in a bad rash. However, because this is a drug and drinking heavy college town and I already have disabilities, and because there are a couple loose big dogs in the new neighborhood, Mommy wants me inside only. That means litterbox.
Can any cats offer me advice as how to become okay with using one again? Also, because of my size and Mommy's allergic reactions, what kind of "box"/litter should we use? Are there covered boxes big enough? Because my leg is broken I can't turn around in a tight space very well. This is going to be very hard for me. BUT I get to be reunited with my Mommy and I'll do anything for her, and anything to snuggle with her every night again.
