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.
I don\'t know how to start - I just know that one of my missions in life is to help animals who can\'t speak up for themselves. How do I enlighten this world (or even a small portion of it)? Where do I start?
Sometimes I feel hate for such a humanity that calls itself civilized yet treats its little brothers and sisters like trash. Yes, we\'ve built space rockets and computers but we\'ve neglected something very precious - our animals who are our friends and wish us no harm. So what kind of sickos do these things? I\'m sure they must have been abused to abuse small creatures, and I was abused too, but heck, sometimes I feel I could just shoot them.
By the way, I used to abuse animals as an infant, not knowing what I was doing, but one day something snapped in me and I became their fierce defender)
Something should be done to stop this, hopefully in this century. How many more dogs and cats have to die from abuse for the people of this world to wake up?
I want many more people to consider adopting animals that are much more likely to be euthanized, like senior dogs and cats and etc...
I want to teach kids it\'s not ok to beat kittens and etc...
But I don\'t know HOW.
I just want to do something to stop this and don\'t know what and IT\'S FRUSTRATING!!!
