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.

Mom thinks I am part Norwegian Forest Cat. What do you guys think? She says I have the straight profile, two layered fur, the tufts in the paws and neck ruff. And more. Any thoughts?(^^

    probably. there's no real way to tell unless you are purebred of course, which you probably aren't since you were a rescue. i am an adopted kitty and i have all those same features, my mommy thinks i'm mostly norwegian. you could be a maine coon though, they're very similar to us. a lot of cat experts think maine coons are descendants of the norse breed. the only marked difference between us and them is our heads are more angular. our skull is actually more in the shape of an equilateral triangle than rounded. either way we are both awesome kitties and we can grow up to be REALLY big! :)
