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.

    I am sorry your cat is hurt that is such a hard thing. I won't even guess what is wrong with your cat I'm not a vet, but I strongly urge you to take it to the emergency vet immediately.

    Please please take your cat to the vet. If you were hit by a car, would you wait to see if the pain went away? Your cat needs medical attention, and you have a responsibility to get him that attention.

    If your cat's behavior has changed since it was hit, chances are it suffered internal injuries or a brain trauma. I'm sure that being told you need to take it to a vet's is not what you wanted to hear by posting to this site. However, we are not vets here and there is no way we can nor should we diagnose and/or suggest treatment. If your cat is still alive, you need to take it to a vet right away. Many vets will work with you as far as payment goes. If your cat has never been to a vet, now is a good time to find one.

    Please take your cat to a vet IMMEDIATELY! This definitely sounds neurological to me. Don't waste any more time.
