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.
Behavior question - should I worry?
Long story short...mom & dad rescued a stray. He is FIV/FELV negative(tested twice) treated for fleas, Giardia& roundworms & was nuetered yesterday. He's very affectionate & seems like a great cat about 1.5 to 2 years old. We have 3 males that love each other & get along now, but are willing to try to add him to our happy family. We have him in a separate bedroom & also have a gate that has a clear plastic window so they can see each other. So, Marley (our youngest & super friendly cat peeked at him through the window gate tonight. Mccoy(our stray) ran up so fast to the Marley & tried to get his claws through the sides to grab at him. There was no hissing, no growling on either side. My husband was on the other side & I was on the inside of the gate. After that, McCoy sat down & did nothing next to the gate, and our other tuxedo (another sweetheart that loves other cats) came up and squeaked at him..almost like saying hello. So, that was it for today, and we shut the door. My only concern is that why did McCoy go low to the ground and run to the gate fast to stick his paws out? Is this aggression or just saying hello??:?
