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.


When will my eyes stop squinting?

I have Herpes and had an outbreak last week (eye boogers, nose boogers, squinting right eye) so my mom got out the terramycin ointment and we've been doing it 2x day for 7 days now. I take L-lysine 2x day on a regular basis so she upped it to 3x day this past week. The boogers have gone but I'm still squinting and now I've been doing a weird shake of the head every once and awhile. Too much L-lysine??? I'm only 5months and this is my 3rd break out. I've been on Clavamox twice before along with the terramycin and I don't want to over do it on the antibiotics and make them ineffective. What should mom do?

    Mom needs to call the vet and get your medication straightened out. You may have to go back in and be re-examined. We aren't vets here and can't diagnose and/or prescribe treatment when we don't know you and your medical history. Mom needs to ask questions about herpes and what can be done in the long run to help lessen the outbreaks. Good luck and many purrs!
