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.

Attila's mom here - This morning a very whiny Attila was insistent upon getting me out of bed, so since it was sunny I decided to try his harness on him again and take him outside. He did WONDERFUL! Not only did he not get scared and try to bolt, get tangled or attempt to escape, but he pottied outside! I'm thinking that if I can start taking him out (now that its done storming I hope) with more of a routine I can cut down on litterbox waste. THAT would be awesome, because I'm allergic to cat urine. But I was just so proud of my little crumudgeon that I wanted to share! Thank you Catster for the harness recommendation!

    great for you Atilla! Tig LOVES his harness. He has a certain crazy meow when he sees it. One thing I do is that after his harness is on, I pick him up & take him out. I am hoping he associates that with going out, so as to cut down on him wanting to bolt out to go outside.
