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 Cat can't stand up or hardly move.?

I just recently got a new cat. Alice. She can't stand up or hardly move at all. She seems to be cold? I put a blanket on her and now shes sleeping. We think she might have been attacked by a dog and now is sore. Is it possible she is so sore she cant really stand up or move? plus she's really sleepy.

    If she's been attacked by a dog she could have serious internal injuries or broken bones. You need to take her to an emergency vet today to get her checked up. Do the decent thing and get her the help she needs at a vet. Its cruel to leave her in so much pain and do nothing.

    I absolutely agree with Sassy. Your cat needs to see a vet now and it is cruel and neglectful to not take her to the vet, especially if you think there is any possiblity that she's been attacked by a dog. Even if she hasn't been attacked by a dog, the symptoms that you are describing are life-threatening, no matter what the cause. Please take her to the vet immediately.
