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.

    not feeling well is a normal reaction to vaccines but if she continues vomiting, has any facial swelling or itchy skin have her seen immediately. alternately you can try giving her some benadryl, 1mg per lb. An adult strength tablet is 25mg and a childrens tab is 12.5 mg.

    Keep an eye on it and call your vet if she isn't better tomorrow. I got my vaccinations and had the same symptoms but they didn't go away and I had to be hospitalized for two days. I was very sick and that doctors were worried.

    Hi, I would not recommend your mom to self medicate you as we do not know if you have an allergic reaction to the vaccine. Please have your mom call your Vet first and they would advice on a waiting period and then when to bring you in. Take care.

    Please call the vet and ask them for advice. They might ask to see her in again. Often this is done either at no charge or for a much smaller fee (as it is a followup), so don't hesitate to take her in if in the meanwhile she's started to feel worse.
