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.


Post-neuter humping

We have had our oddly behaving black cat for over eight years. Recently, we deduced that he is a British Bombay. His personality and temperament exactly mesh with the descriptions herein and at other sites, including those that are breed-specific. He has the pale yellow-green eyes and the short, but boxy, snout indicating he is of the British line. One odd behavior that I haven't seen described anywhere is his propensity to hump. He is on his second throw pillow since we've had him and he has been neutered since he came home with us. As our orange tabby is also neutered and doesn't display this behavior, we wondered if it is a breed characteristic or just a "defect" in his personality. ;+)

    Our Bombay Cat also does the the humping , he has his own micro-fibre blanket he uses and I have not ever seen this behaviour before in all the different breeds of cats I have had in the the last 50 years. It must be something only Bombay cats do , I am sort of glad I am not the only one experiencing it , I would like to hear from other Bombay cat owners and see if it is common . :^::^:
