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, www.catster.com 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.
Why does my cat cry and paw at the mirror at night?
I have a 3 year old siamese mix neutered boy who is very docile and sweet-tempered. I thought he was lonely so I got him a little siamese sister and they get along great. But every night without fail, he goes to the sliding doors of my closet (they are full length mirrors as well as sliding doors) and starts crying dolefully while pawing the edges of the doors... it makes the loudest clanging sound! Nothing stops him from doing this. I have tried water guns, clapping loudly... he will leave temporarily then come back five minutes later when I'm finally falling asleep.
Any ideas as to why he's doing this? It is incredibly frustrating.
