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.
How to feed when you have one adult and one kitten?
These cats are used to being free fed. They are also suffering from what I call new home syndrome, where they hide like crazy until comfortable. One is 8 weeks old and the other is 5 years old. Do I try to get them to eat from their own dishes brining them to their hiding spots for now or do I use an all life stages formula for now and leave it out for them to eat when they feel safe enough to?
Once they are over the new home syndrome, do I give them their own dishes and do feeding times? The 5 year old needs to lose weight. They were free fed and he is big. Not healthy big, not good genes big, FAT big. He is in the lineup to see the vet for their oppinion but since he is one of the new animals in our care he has to wait.
Any advice to get us started would be great.
