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.


Why is it when I ask a question, it is refused because someone asked it before?

I keep on getting a message that says "This question has already been asked by someone else." Well, I want to ask it myself. Why can't I? Stupid.

    That's a good question. Probably it's because Catster is still in the developing stages, and not as sophisticated as other sites you may have used. I follow the Answers Board regularly, and I've never seen a question like yours before.

    I'm also new to Catster, but I'm guessing there might be some key words in your question that makes it look similar to questions that already have been answered. When you go into Answers, near the top of the page there is a Search area. Try typing in the important words of your Question, optionally selecting a Category, and clicking the Go button. I don't know how good their search is, but this may help you find the answer you need. Good luck.
