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.


Whisker City "At Ease" for the big move?

So I've always been a skittish kitty. My brother, Newton, is very big and brave and adventurous (unless we are in the car), but I've always been kind of timid and I definitely like my routine. Meowma is getting ready for us to move in one week. All of our things are packed and there are boxes stacked up in the living room where I like to lay. So far I'm handling it okay, but I am VERY confused. Meowma wants to buy some Feliway diffusers for the new home but she can't get in there yet. She was buying us food the other day and saw this "Whisker City: At Ease" spray that is supposed to do something similar. She is spraying it all over the house to see if it helps us relax with all the changes that are happening. Right now Newton and I are fast asleep. Meowma thinks it could be because we are nice and relaxed! Has anyone else tried this specific brand? Did you like it? Is it more worth while to just bite the bullet and buy the Feliway diffusers and/or spray? This stuff was only $10 for an 8 fl oz bottle and it has some good reviews on Petsmart's website so meowma thought she'd give it a shot. |^||^||^|:^::^:

    Sorry, I probably should have posted this in "Cats and Travel" but I didn't see that category until just now. Womp womp. :(:-/:r

    That's ok, Wally! I moved it for ya. %:D% We haven't tried that particular brand, but it does sound pretty similar to Feliway (and less expensive!).=; Feliway, I think, works great for some kitties and for some it doesn't seem to have much effect--it just depends on the cat. I'm glad that the At Ease seems to be helping you, Wally. Our family has also had some success with Bach's Rescue Remedy for kitties who didn't respond to Feliway. It uses flower essences that have a calming effect. Good luck with the move! Keep us posted. :5

    Thanks! Meowma is going to see if this seems to help the next few days. She just feels bad that all these changes are disrupting our routine. And once she moves all the furniture out to the new home, we still have to wait 2 weeks to go to the new house because Meowma has to finish school here and graduate college! Lots of things going on lately! ::o
