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.
As some of you know, my Kizmet passed away this past weekend. He was 10. Ben is nearly 3, and has lived with other cats his whole life. When he arrived he had a brother and a sister. Both have passed on now, and he's very clingy with me. He really loved Kizmet. Playing with him, just being around him. I do want to get him a sibling, although not right this moment. I am thinking about what would be a good fit for the both of us when the time comes, does anyone have any advice? He has a dominant personality, loves to play and cuddle.
I'm not sure if he'd be 'less threatened' by a small kitten, or more compatible with a cat his own age. I know that whoever comes into our home will take some adjustment for sure. I'm also not sure when we should get a new sibling. Sooner? Later? I don't want to upset him more with another upheaval in the house, but he gets nervous when I'm gone and is clingy when I come home. He'd never been alone in the house until Kizmet went to the hospital last week. He's definitely not a loner cat!
