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.

    Well, it was a little hard to understand what you meant. Your sentence is a little choppy! From what I can understand your cat is very stand offish and you're not sure why. Well most cats have varying personalities. She may not be a cuddler, not all cats like cuddling. :) Don't blame yourself, it may just be her personality! One thing to keep in mind is that if she was separated from her mom at 6 weeks that may have something to do with her behavior. Most cats need to be with their moms until 12 weeks. Good luck! :)
