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 am 8 years old now. I stopped urinating in the litter box just recently. Nothing has changed and I

I urinate on the couch, on the floor, on curtains, and on clothes that are on the floor. My litter box is cleaned very often and nothing has changed at all. I've used the same litter for at least 3 years. The vet ran tests and assured my problem was behavioral and put me on medication to ease my stress. I still soiled the house when I was medicated.

    What kind of tests did the vet do? Whatever the case may be changeing your cats diet to an all wet diet that is high in protein and grain free is the best thing you can do. Please read a site called there is lots of good info there. You also need to buy a cleaner that is sold at petstores that will rid of the smell of cat urine. Natures Miracle is the best one, it nuetralizes the urine, doesnt just cover it up. Cats will tend to urinate where they have been before, so this is why you need the cleaner.

    Is this the same vet that you all ways had ? It sounds like you may have a urine infection . I would try another vet if you can not get anywhere with this vet. Most times when cats urinate outside the litter box is because they had pain going and they feel that the litter box is what caused it.
