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.

    I don't think I will ever know or understand the answer to that! Studies have also proven that those who are cruel to animals have a strong tendancy to go to abuse people. Disrespect for animals' lives leads to a disrespect for life in general.

    Because unfortunately they have some horrible people in this world who don't understand that we are seeing, feeling and thinking beings just like them. We are little people without a voice. Sigh.....

    You could go insane trying to figure people out. Trying to figure out how their brain works, what goes on in there. If you knew the answers to everything you wondered you would probably go insane and have to be institutionalized. Sick sick world sometimes. I'm just happy knowing that I'm not like that and you just have to purr for all the animals out there without loving homes.

    Becuz Man"KIND" is more often than not-- NOT kind!! AAAAGH!!! Meowmie sez "I think I understand how an innocent animal must feel when it is being abused. Because I know too well, what an innocent child feels like when it sees a towering enraged human being coming over to do it grave harm or worse. My screams were eventually heard-- the animals, sometimes never".... Meowmie has a HARD time sleeping some nights when she realizes that somewhere an animal IS getting abused, terrorized, killed.... she thinks of the Korean Cat and Dog Fur and Food markets... she thinks of the Phillipine Dog Meat markets... she thinks of what is going on right here in the US... and she cries AND she surrounds those animals with love, even if they are thousands of miles away, and hopes that they feel some comfort and love, even in their most horrible torments...... Love knows no boundaries... AND she speaks up and emails and writes letters -- and she HOPES FOR THE BEST, because there is ALWAYS HOPE.
