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.

    Smitty, I couldn\'t get your link to work, but I think THIS LINK will take you to the same story. It really is awful that people doing things like this get away with it. The courts and police need to send out a clear message that abusing animals is a serious crime. Leida.

    Hey Smittie, I hate to see stories like these. :(( I too live in a place where the animal cruelty laws are weak (Wyoming.) In fact we kitties have to be careful if we go outside because we can be shot as long as we\'re not inside a town limit or on our peoples property. I hope that the kittie in the story gets to go to a loving home.
