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.
It may be that I have this new cat off of dry, which he was used to. He has adapted I suppose, he is eating the dry meat stuff I got from the vet, as is my cat of 6 years. Problem is he seems as though he cant get enough food. He isnt starving by any means, I think he alone eats a whole can a day, plus the meat I give him, PLUS he chomps on the dried meat too, but.....
I can keep him away from my other cat's special food, that she eats in stages. This Im learning to deal with. What I cant deal with is I cant even make a sandwich without him trying to hop on the table and grab it. I dont mean after I leave it for a half hour, I mean like I turn my back and he's ON IT lickedy split. Im at my wits end wit him--never seen a cat with such a voracious appetite.
I scold him, but it does nothing. The only thing I can think to do now is to seal him in the spare room when food is being prepared. Ive run out of solutions, but I guess its a youth thing? He's three...
He is also an inside outside cat, and its winter, that might have something to do with it too. He's a shorthair and he doesnt like the cold very much so he spends most of his time indoors.
Also, a behavior oddity: He doesnt GET the whole playing with other cats thing. I think he was raised alone and left alone alot till he ended up at the pound. Ive had him for four months now, and he doesnt seem to understand what right and whats wrong, he just gets scaredwhen I holler at him. Im tired of scolding him..... goes nowhere
