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.
Our oldest cat died peacefully in her sleep this morning. Mama Boo was 21. We are a very large multi cat household, but have the room and means to do so ( see the page for Kittie Kommittee)
All the the kitties after waking me up and alerting me something was wrong, seemed to know Boo was dead. They all came up one by one and touched noses with her, then followed me out to the hill behind the house where we have a small pet cemetary. Boo\'s daughter Bitsey led the troop back to the house went to Boo\'s spot looked at the other cats and made a big show of laying down in Boo\'s spot. Her daughter Little Bit went to her mothers spot where she used to lay, and curled up in it. The cats all came over to both of them touched noses with Little Bit then Bitsey and have since gone about their normal routine.Only Boo and Bitsey had two special spots that only they were allowed to lay on,and if any other cat did the war was on.
What did I witness here with Bitsey and Little Bit? Has anyone else seen this type of behavior?
