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.

My vet wants to do a nose culture and chest X-ray on my sneezing cat. She has been sneezing awhile with crusty eyes. . Anyone advise from someone who has had this done to their cat would be greatly appreciated.

    The vet may be thinking it is an infection. Felix had a chest xray to determine his pneumonia as he inhaled a grass blade, and she wanted to see if there was anything else in his lung. I don't think it will be too bad, and it will help to find out why your kitty is sick.
