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.

    How old is she? If she's over about 3 weeks old, give her a few days to settle in. She might just be "holding it" because she's stressed. If she's under 3 weeks, you need to help her by wiping her butt with a warm, damp cloth until she goes potty.

    Hopefully she's older than 3 weeks!!! Shelters usually don't adopt out kittens younger than 6 weeks. haven't said if kitty is eating normally. If so, then you should start to see defecation in 1-2 days (stress can cause constipation). If kitty hasn't pooped by day 2 at home, I'd call the vet. You may need to go in for an enema.
