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.
Question/opinion about canned food
Midnight Helen's mom speaking:
I just started Midnight Helen on canned food after she had been eating nothing but dry food for practically all of her life. The reason I started canned is that it seemed to me that it was getting a little difficult for her to chew in the last few months (she had her bottom "fangs" (haha) removed about 7 or 8 years ago--I don't know what the long fang-like teeth are called). Anyway, here's my question: Is it best to refrigerate the canned food or not? I read somewhere once that it actually tasted better when it's refrigerated, but I just fed her some and it actually about made me gag, where the gravy was nothing but "jelly" and it sure didn't look very appetizing to me. I was just wondering if anyone else refrigerates canned food. Thanks!!
