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.
Which breed is best for...?
My wife and I are ready to adopt a kitty, but we have questions on which breed would be best for our lifestyle. We currently live in a small two-level townhome, and are at work 6am-5pm. We have no other pets. We don't travel for work, but do have the occaisional weekend trip (family friends in the area can pet-sit if needed).
However, in 1-2 years, will plan on moving into a single-family home, add a few kids, and possibly a dog to the mix.
From what I'm reading, it's a tough choice between what would be best now (low activity or attention) versus what would be best later (high activity and attention). But are there some that would be fine with either?
I was thinking of the Norwegian Forest Cat, LaPerm, Chartreux, Ragdoll, or Somali... but am sure there are many others to consider.
Thanks so much!
