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.


The Life Of Pi

Well, it's kinda cat related, a Bengal Tiger is a main character. Which version of Pi's tale did you believe? Curious to see others perceptions of this fantastic piece of literature. I personally think his original story with the animals is true rather than the abridged version for the authorities, but common-sense tells me otherwise.

    I loved this book. Parts of it were really funny! I especially loved how Pi was interested in all of the different religions. That was really fascinating. I heard that a movie was going to be made from it. I would want to rent it but I don't think I could bear to pay to see it dissected into a movie.

    I loved this book! What an amazing journey that he had to undertake. The fact that he survived against all odds while living with a Tiger on a life raft. Definately a must read =; P.S. I LOVED the idea of the algae island,that was SO cool!!

    I LOVED THAT BOOK! but I did skip over the relgion chapter, that was sort of dry. The rest was amazing though, I couldnt put it down. Just a great story.

    I had a very difficult time reading some of the parts of this book, I am squeamish. It has been awhile since I read it but I agree with the cat who said they would like to believe the animal version even though they know logically the story told to the authorities was probably true. The island part of the book was SHOCKING mol! Has anyone else read a book called The 13 1/2 Lives of Captain BlueBear? I only started reading it, but lost intrest, but there was an island in that book where BlueBear landed and it was a gourmet island all made of food. There were no natural predators, so he just got really huge and lazy, then when he was to out of shape to move, the island came alive and tried to eat HIM!!! The island itself was a predator!!! Sort of simliar, someone who enjoyed Life Of Pi or Harry Potter might enjoy it. I might try reading it again when I am less distracted.
