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.


My kitten (7 months) has violent leg shakingl. Is she ok?

Cookie (7 months) who is alright health wise occasionally has 30 seconds to 1 minute of leg shaking, her two back legs vibrate almost like a cell phone on vibrate. She seems ok and her eyes don't close, but I'm just checking its nothing serious.

    She might have some kind of neurological problem of some kind. If it something that happens once in awhile i wouldnt be too concerned. I would mention it to the vet during the next check up.

    I would call the vet-you never know, and at least then you have peace of mind-

    Take her to a vet soon. The vet will know what to do.

    My cats are twitchy when they sleep, but they never just start shaking while they're awake. If you'll be taking Cookie to the vet soon, just bring it up then if it only happens once in a while. If you won't be seeing the vet soon, I'd give them a call and see if this is something they feel cookie should come in for.
