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.
Foods to help with dander and digestion
Hi everyone, we adopted a kitty last week. My vet said he doesn't have a bad dander problem, but he has flakes all over when I brush him.
We are feeding him friskies food, we really can't completely alter his diet (because of budget), but I'd like to know if I can add some people food to help balance out what he may be missing.
I have heard eggs (raw) can help dogs with dander, so I'm wondering if there is anything similar for cats.
If you have recipes or websites to reference that'ed be great! (His vet was not helpful at all, she said "the food he's eating is fine, some more expensive brands may help with the dander, or they may not")
He has also had the runs since coming home. The Animal control said it's normal because of the food switch, but I'd like to help him if I can.
Thanks for the suggestions!
