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.

Dear Catsters, In a past forum posting several months ago, we discussed how we could stop "bunchers" from selling animals to dealers who sell them into research labs. Our prayers have been answered! Please read below AND spread the news to all dog and cat lovers that you can. Please take just a moment of your time to act NOW to save what could be your own pet if it gets lost.

    Calypso, I hope you don't mind me turning those two links into live ones so the Catsters can access them easier. Federal Pet Safety and Pet Protection Act Contact Your Congressman. As I'm not a US citizen I haven't a congressman to write to, so it's the least I can do. Leida
