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.
My Louie is gone and needs some wings
My Louie suddenly stopped eating Sunday night. I thought he had just eaten something that disagreed with him But after 2 days of hiding, and yesterday afternoon he started to meow in distress, I took Louie to the vet yesterday, and by the time we got there he couldn't move and was turning yellow. His liver was shutting down, and there's nothing they could do. They wanted to run some tests to confirm, so I went home to gather his things together. I went back with my boyfriend to say goodbye, and they sent him to rainbow bridge. It was so fast, and I know I did the right thing, as he had lost all his vitality in those couple days, and when we went to say goodbye he didn't even seem like himself. He will be buried in my boyfriend's rose garden, next to his brother Henry that dies a few years ago.
Goodbye my sweet Louie boy, it was a pleasure to have been your momma.
When Henry died someone put wings on his profile picture. Can anyone help me do the same for Louie?
