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.


Siamese died, 7 yr old female (spayed) who lived with her is now peeing & pooping all over the dinin

I have 2 maine coons, both spayed and a male cat, breed not known who has been neutered. My Siamese was 14 and died recently. I am wondering why all of a sudden my 7 year old mutt (Alyce) is not using the litter boxes - both are scooped every other day and one is not even being used at all. She is boxed trained and up until about a week after Sassie died she was using the box. HELP!!

    Like humans, cats like their routines and daily habits. When something changes in their home, one way their anxiety may manifest itself is by urinating outside the cat litter box. With a little bit of work and patience, your kitty can be calmed down and get back to her good litter box habits. I have come across a really interesting article on CAT ANXIETY AND LITTER BOX PROBLEMS at which should help.
