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 daughters cat keeps peeing on thngs and it is causing alot of problems. No he doesn't have a bla

This is more like spraying, like marking. There is one other cat in the house. He has been doing this more lately. Mostly on their comforter and on the furniture. She is getting desparate for some help for this. She has had him about five years and this has been in the last year.

    If the cat has been to the vet and a urinary tract infection has been ruled out, then most likely it is a behavioral issue. Your daughter could try giving this cat his own litter box and put it in a totally different area than the other cat's litter box. I still would follow up with the vet and explain what has been happening. Maybe he/she can offer some solutions, or possibly medication.

    Tough as this has been going on for a while. An answer may be to a separation to a quiet room with a box in it for a bit to see if there are still misses. Was there some trigger? Was it when the other cat moved in? Or some other stress? I have used multiple boxes put in various areas to good result in the past with similar problems(Stress from adding members) Mine have been temporary. I put the boxes where the cat was going. I noted which boxes were being used. Then moved them in increments to better locations and the kit adjusted. I then decreased the others one at a time. Keep at least one box per cat. I have 3 boxes for 3 cats in 2 different areas. They mainly use 2, but, the other is there and, oddly enough, they will use that exclusively for a bit, then return to normal. I'm Bats 4 Cats.
