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.

    It is not normal for a cat to not eat. You need to see a vet asap. Cats deteriorate quickly and can have complications with their liver if they go without food for too long.

    Please take your kitten to the vet. This is not normal, and needs to be checked out.

    The best thing you can do is take him to the vet. Pierre got like that and he ended up having something really bad wrong with him. If I would've waited he wouldn't be here now. The vet doesn't know what caused it but Pierre did get better after some medications and a lot of TLC. Pierre was around 5 months old too. Hold him and talk to him as much as you can, and try putting his fave soft food on your finger and putting it on his lips. Make sure he sees the vet and gets his follow ups. praying for you- Leena and Pierre Henry
