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.
Help!!! My new cat keeps pooping outside the box!
2 months ago, we got our cute little rescue cat when she was 10 months old from our local vet. We already have another 2-year old cat as well. However, our new cat keeps having problems with pooping in the box! We have two boxes, one is the pellet-based Breeze system that she seems to prefer. It has walls but no roof. The other is a covered box that uses clumping litter. Our other cat prefers that one. The new cat has used both for poop, but seems to prefer the Breeze if she uses a box at all. She is constantly pooping outside of the box on the carpet. She even pooped in the shower once about a month ago, and then rubbed her butt on the floor, so we finally took her to the vet and all they did was express her anal glands which were apparently full. However, this has not helped her pooping problem. The vet tech did not have any advice for us, other than that it might just be a strange quirk of hers. We also tried changing her food to a sensitive systems food, to no avail. Please help!!!
