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.
HELP! I have a 15 yr old male cat with early stages of CKD.He was hyperthyroid and we had his thyroid irradiated about a year ago. He also has megacolon and with vet direction I add some o/c laxative to his food daily. I have been reading Dr. Piersons info re raw/partially cooked food plus supplements.I have to admit I am overwhelmed. Can I just find a simple recipe that I don't need a grinder for and some readily available supplements to add so I can get started. He is very picky and still somewhat thin. Right now he is eating Science diet dry food that is supposed to help with kidney issues. Yes, I know dry is bad but gotta get him to eat. Also have tried numerous canned foods from expensive to inexpensive...still finnicky. Can someone help me? Please... I want to help him. Also, would prefer if another cat of same age but without the health problems can eat the same food...... Please...
