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.

    You can get cleaning solvents at pet stores designed to remove pet odors but cat pee is VERY hard to get rid of. Even if you can't smell it any more kitty still can and will go in the sopt again. If it's carpet you should probably have it replaced as pee soaks into the padding underneath. If your kitty is a boy and not fixed then he's marking and if you get him fixed then that should stop. If kitty is a girl or fixed boy then kitty may have a UTI or other problem, a vet visit can see what is the cause for the bad behavior. if there have been any changes in the house, new pet or person, kitty may be doing this out of stress. Whatever you do don't "punish" kitty for this by rubbing her nose in it or any simmilar tactic, unlike dogs this will only make kitty resentful and make her do it more. Also try putting out more litterpans in other places and clean them often, kitty may be picky about her litterpan's condition and location.

    You could try Simple Solution. Our mom uses it for us, and it seems to work pretty good.
