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.


Biting random objects

So a couple of days ago, I noticed Hunter was biting a ceramic house. I put the house away and things were fine. This morning, he started to bite a light bulb!!! I took that away immediately. He doesn't bite people. He can't be teething. He will be 11 months old next week. Maybe he is hungry? Should I start giving him more food? He gets a can a day. 5.5oz. Anyone else's kitty bite random objects? He doesn't eat anything, just kind of like naws on it. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

    I wasn't sure, so I had to look it up, kittens are done teething, by 24 weeks. I am wondering if Hunter has a tooth that is bothering him. Can you look in his mouth, and see if anything looks inflammed? You might want to give your vet a quick call, and maybe take him in to have his teeth examined. :D The others will also have good ideas and thoughts. Best of luck, and let us know. :D :-h

    Alright so Hunters teeth are fine. But he started biting my shoes this weekend. Sometimes I think he was a dog in a previous life! :)) I wonder if they have like chew toys for cats. I don't know why he is biting things. Its so odd. Suggestions?

    Nova bites random objects, too. She won't go looking for things to bite, but if it's sitting infront of her face, she will absentmindedly bite it. Her most common thing to bite is the corner of the laptop when she is comfortable on my lap. She has also chewed through the wire on one of my headsets while sitting on my lap. And the other day, we caught her gnawing on a chair that she was sitting next to! I have yet to figure out her reason for this, so sorry I can't provide any advice as to why your kitty might be doing it.. but at least you can know that you aren't alone. :)
