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.
my cat, einstein. seems to be absolutely addicted to dry food. we had decided to put him on a canned food diet, which he seems to just tolerate, after some unexplained bladder inflammation several months ago and he hasn't had a bite since. first, when my other cat was recovering from surgery, we tried giving her some dry food just to get her appetite back. Einstein freaked out and yowled from the other side of the door and tried to bolt in every time we opened it to get in and out. second, he'll randomly get sick like 10 min after he eats. i can't figure out why. to me it seems like a little bit of a rebellion. it comes in waves where he'll do it like two or three meals in a row and then he'll be fine. third, while i was out of town, i bought a small bag of evo just in case my brother, who was catsitting, couldn't feed them their canned food. turns out, einstein got up on the counter, and chewed his way into the bag which was unopened until he got to it. my brother found it all over the counter. he put everything in a ziploc bag and put it in the pantry. last night after just getting into bed after a long day of driving home, i heard a crazy scrathing noise. einstein was pawing and scratching to get into the pantry bc he knew that's where the dry food was. it's like he's on crack if he sees, hears, or smells dry food.
