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.


Does anyone take supplements?

I'm just wondering if anyone takes any supplements. My brother PJ takes a supplement and I'm just wondering if I should as well. I have a great skin and coat so I'm thinking I don't really need one.

    If you're eating a good quality kitty food and have no health issues (arthritis, anemia, herpes) I really don't think supplements are necessary. There are so many wonderful cat foods out there today that have everything we need to be strong and healthy. I know I don't want to take anything I don't have to :)!

    I take a joint supplement (Cosequin) but it's because I have arthritis from when my leg was hurt a few years ago. I have pins and screws in my leg, and my arthritis tends to flare up in rainy or cold weather. The Cosequin helps a lot. But if you're healthy and have no medical conditions requiring supplements, you probably don't need to take any supplements.

    I take a kind of vitamin for my coat. It makes me look better and my coat is better now. My hair doesn't spill so much.
