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.

    I can't find anything that says the carrot greens wuld be toxic, and some dog and cat foods do include the actual carrot itself, but just to be safe, I would contact my vet for the go-ahead. If you want to feed your cat healthy greens, google "cat grass" and send for oat, rye, barley, wheat and clover grass seeds and grow greens just for her. It's easy and healthy for them and they actually make a nice looking plant.

    Yes, ask your vet. The issue of whether vegetables are necessary or not for cats is a hot topic on the Foods Forum. But I do not believe that vegetables, per se, are the equivalent of junk food for humans. Cats are too smart for that--although they will eat poisonous flowers and other plants... Spike is obsessed with nibbling on daikon radish greens, as was one of my former cats. There are Internet sites that tell you what plants are poisonous or harmful to cats. If you don't want to ask your vet, let your fingers do the walking and search out those sites.
