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.

Cheers,
Catster

Here is a link to the info for Felines pride cat food recall http://petsitusa.com/blog/?p=3378 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – July 1, 2010 – Buffalo, NY – Feline’s Pride is announcing a voluntary recall of Feline’s Pride Raw food with ground bone for cats and kittens, Natural Chicken Formula, Net Wt. 2.5 lbs. (1.13 kg., 40 oz.) produced on 6/10/10, because it may be contaminated with Salmonella. People handling raw pet food can become infected with Salmonella, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with the raw pet food or any surfaces exposed to the product. [...] The product is packaged in uncoded plastic containers and sold frozen to private consumers nationwide. Once thawed, the pet food has a shelf life of about 1 week. The firm manufactures the pet food by an as-ordered basis. This recall affects only those orders placed and shipped from June 10 through June 17, 2010. [...] This product should not be fed to pets but should instead be disposed of in a safe manner (e.g., in a securely covered trash receptacle). People who are experiencing the symptoms of Salmonella infection after having handled the pet food product should seek medical attention, and report their use of the product and illness to the nearest FDA office. If you have any questions, the FDA is telling pet owners to contact the company at (716) 580-3096, Monday –Friday from 10 am – 4 pm EDT. Read the rest from the Feline’s Pride Issues Nationwide Recall of its Natural Chicken Formula Cat Food Due to Salmonella Contamination. I don’t know what’s up with pet food and salmonella, but I sure hope these pet food companies get their stuff together and figure it out!

    Here is some more information about the Feline's Pride recall from the owner of the company: Click here It's too bad they had this recall, because Feline's Pride is an excellent raw food (imho). I purrsonally wouldn't hesitate to feed it. This food is all custom made raw ground food. It's not found in stores, but is shipped (safely) to customers - has been for five years. I've tried it and would feed more of it, but it's pricey when you factor in the shipping (Gump loved it, btw). Just wanted to pass this along, though I know raw isn't for everyone.
