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.


Cat pooping and peeing around house and new baby?

My 5 year old cat has started peeing and pooping all over my house since we brought home our baby boy 3 months ago... What can I do to stop this. He is ruining all our new carpet. His new favorite place is below our bed. I dont want to get rid of him, but this behavior is making me REALLY angry, and pretty grossed out.

    First take your cat to the vet to rule out any health problems, like urinary infection, etc. Then you will know for sure that is behavioral from the new baby addition. Your vet will surely give you some suggestions. YOu need to still give your cat lots of attention, I know its hard with a new baby, but..... also you could try a thing called Feliway, this is a spray that is sold at most pet stores that will help the cat with stress.

    Only one simple answer, Jealous, The cat feels left out because he isn't getting enough attention and the baby is. This very thing happened to my nephew the cat quit when they started paying more attention to him.
