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've found spots of blood throughout my apartment. I have two 7 year old cats - 1 male, 1 female. Bo

I haven't been to the vet about this yet.

    Check them over to see if you can find an injury. You may not be able to see it but might be able to feel it or they will shy away when you run your hands over it. It could also a bad urinary tract infection (UTI) and you are seeing drops of bloody urine. Has one of them been running back and forth to the litter box a lot? If from the physical exam / litter box visits you can figure out who it is you can take just them to the vet. If you're not sure you'll have to take them both and let the vet figure it out for you. You should give the vet a call tomorrow and take them in asap in case it is an abscess or UTI that needs antibiotics. The vet will probably be able to figure it out pretty easily and treat whichever one is sick/injured.
