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, Regis, loves to cuddle all the time. I also love this. The only problem is his kneading. He's a rather big cat so he kneads very hard. So hard to where i have bruises on my neck! He even woke my boyfriend up to coughing from kneading on his neck so hard. I love my baby to death and I know he loves me, but is there any way to reduce or stop all this kneading?

    When he starts to knead, try to redirect his paws to a pillow. I found that laying the cat on it's side (facing away from you) and putting a small pillow or stuffed animal in front of them may make them start to knead the pillow and not you. The important thing is not to "discipline" him. He is kneading out of love and contentment; and you don't want to send him the wrong message.
