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.


Chicken Stew

I want to add some variety to my cats' diet and was thinking of making a chicken stew for my cats. After reading some posts on here, I think I came up with a good recipe. I'm going to use ground chicken (with bone), chicken livers, chicken gizzards, pumpkin seeds, and cranberries. Would this be nutritionally complete? I don't plan on using it as an exclusive diet, but I thought they would like to have some variety in their diet. Jeanette loves boiled chicken breast!

    Are you thinking about cooking this? I'm not crazy about the idea cooking bone but if it's ground it might be ok. Is the chicken ground with all its organs? Because you've got liver in there but no "other" organ. And personally I don't see the point of the seeds and berries for an obligate carnivore. Sorry, the last thing I mean to do here is discourage you! But it's so important that your cat's diet is balanced. I would supplement this mixture for sure. And make sure your proportion of meat/bone/organs is right. Let me know if I can help in any way.
