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.


Question about Trader Joe\'s cat food

Tried to go though and read older posts, but I'm basically wondering what the texture of TJ's cat food is? Bella Mae will not eat food that is not pate or ground style. No big chunks, no flakes, no shreds. Cordelia Joy is a little more open since I started her on different varieties of moist food when I adopted her as a baby. Pate tho, is preferred. Trader Joe's opened up in a city that is maybe and hour and a half or so away from me. I'd like to try some of their foods-the WM near me seems to be discontinuing the better options of Fancy Feast. I'll have even less options for inexpensive foods to alternate with. I do not want to buy several cans at once and find it's a texture that my cats will not eat readily. I prefer to purchase foods in person-I've had touch and go luck with ordering cases of food in the past. There have been times that after I order a case the kitties figure it out and will not eat it. (I swear, it's all a plot against me trying to save money and time).

    My cats love this stuff, my only concern is that every single of one their flavors contain fish, wondering if it's too much fish to feed regularly? Also, the smell, be ready to smell seafood trough out your whole house! :)

    Ahh, thanks for the warning re-smell. :) I would be alternating this with other foods, so not feeding this every day. I try to not feed too much fish too often. Basically try to not feed too much of anything too often (chicken, etc.)
