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.


I\'m always hungry, or at least I act that way!

I know I get fed twice a day with wet food and it's exactly the right amount for my weight because I just went to the vet and she said Mom was doing exactly what was right. But I'm staying with my Grandma for two weeks and Mom is freaking out that Grandma is feeding me lots of food whenever I want because I'm acting hungry. Mom asked the vet if she should supplement with dry food throughout the day because I always act hungry, but the vet said no dice. Why do I always act hungry between meals when I know it's not time to be fed? PS: Mom and Grandma had a talk and I no longer get extra food between meals. Boo.

    You're a growing kitten and while your body continues to grow, your caloric needs increase. You will continue to go in and out of these "growth spurts" for several months.

    Well, I don't know about you, but I am always hungry! I LOVE food! Any kind is fine with me! But I'm not overweight or anything. Unfortunately, my mom won't let me have any human food.
