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.


Major problem with Wellness canned cat food

I received a shipment of 2 cases of Wellness formula (not Core) canned cat food from Petflow and the food is half dried out. 1 case of chicken and 1 of turkey, both were bad. The 2 previous shipments from Petflow were fine. I have had this same problem with the same food from PetFoodDirect so there must be some problem with Wellness's canning process. In the past I tried adding water to the food to restore the moisture but my cats don't like the taste. I am giving up on Wellness food and switching to Merrick canned. I just sent Wellness a message and have not heard back from them yet.

    There IS something really weird going on with wellness. I have seen recent reports from this month of bad problems ... and with a little digging it seems it has to do with their packing plant. If you get products with packing from a certain area - the formula hasn't changed... Yet if you do - they ahve added things like chicken broth to the turkey and a few other chicken byproducts. Since I've received the 'bad' cans .. my cats have both got terrible diarrhea. I try my best to feed the kitties something healthy and grain free and i'm getting left with no options. BB will be having recalls i'm sure soon with as many terrible sicknesses the pets have been getting - and now this >_
