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.


Suddenly hiding and antisocial

I\'ve always been a little skittish...I don\'t like loud noises or lots of people and I\'m definitely not a fan of being picked up and held. I\'ve always liked people though, and used to greet my people when they came home from work. Lately I\'ve spent most of my time hiding under the bed. I\'ll come out a few times a day to snuggle with my brother and headbutt mom while she\'s getting ready for work or make cricket sounds at dad, but mostly I\'m just hanging out under the bed. I\'m still eating and drinking water. Nothing has changed in my living situation - no new cats or people, no one went away, and no one has changed schedules. My people are obviously worried about me. I don\'t know what to tell them when they ask why I\'m hiding all the time?

    Well that's a little concerning. A kitty doesn't usually hide like that suddenly for no reason. Can you take him into the vet to be checked out? Cats are notoriously good at hiding illness so we as parents have to learn the subtle signs that something is wrong.

    I'm not sure where you live, but it's pretty cold where I live and us kitties always look for the warmest spots to nap. In our guest room there's a heater vent under the bed, so sometimes in cold weather we'll go under that bed to sleep because it's nice and toasty there.
