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.


Bump is very upset

Catster took his birthday post, out of the kitten section, and put it in the party section, which ain't nobody going to see it in there. I specifically put it in there, because when he was a kitten, I was told he would not make it past 1 yr old, the fact that he is 4 yrs old, is very meaningful and significant to me. Can you even imagine how horrible it was to be told, your kitten is going to die, and then, he is still going strong at 4. And Athena's mommy requested that we not do the blog, I understand why, and will respect her wishes, wanted to do something nice for her, shot down again today. Gee, sorry I even mentioned it was his birthday, will not make that mistake again.

    *purrs and comforts Bump* |:| Im sorry your post got moved big Bump. Happy Birthday you sweet cuddly kitty. ;P Athena's Mommy may have asked you not to do the blog, but it may be therapeutic for you to write up what you had wanted to anyways, and just keep it to yourself until such time that she is ready to see it (which may never come). I know you have a really big heart, so you might find doing something like that for yourself a healing experience as well.

    Bump, please don't be upset. I understand why you wanted the post in the kitten section, but you are a big boy now. I know you are very proud of it and want to encourage other kitties but I'm guessing Catster just wanted to make sure the forums stay on topic. Sometimes they are more strict than others. But don't worry. Your friends have grown up too and they will know you are all grown up. Maybe you could post something in Cat Health about what was wrong with you and how you survived it. Happy Birthday sweet boy. We adore you!
