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.


My female Maine Coon is peeing all over my house! What is wrong?

She just started this about a little over a month ago. She started to pee on my daughters toys, etc at first, now it's just everywhere. What can I do to help her stop this?

    Your first step is to visit the vet and rule out a medical problem. Sudden inappropriate peeing is usually a sign of something like a urinary tract infection. Next step is to rule out reasons she might be mad. Have there been any changes that upset her? New home, new pet, new people living in the house? Did you move her litterbox? Did you change the litter brand? Is the box scooped at least once a day and kept clean enough for her? She is either protesting something that upset her or else she may have a medical problem she istrying to tell you about. Good luck!
