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.


Need help transporting a special needs kitten from NJ USA to Calgary AB, Canada.

My name is Bailey and I currently have two paraplegic kittens. I have been approved to adopt a kitten who is partially paraplegic (from the knees down), named Psi. Psi is also pseudo hermaphroditic. They believe she has female parts outside, but testicles inside. Psi lives in New Jersey right now, but we're having trouble figuring out a way to get her to me in Calgary AB, as she cannot travel cargo on a plane, therefore cannot travel unaccompanied. I'm working with the rescue group trying to find organizations where pilots take a rescue pet with them if they happen to be going the route you need. I was wondering if maybe you have any suggestions or have come across anyone who may be able to help. Thanks, Bailey

    Bailey, my advice is to google "pet transport" and go from there. There is an airline that transports ONLY pets, but they're limited to a few airports. I believe there are also private pilots and some truckers who will transport pets. May the Creator bless you for your compassion - ask for His help, and I believe you will find it.
