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.

    Sorry, I agree with Mittens. Unless you are a certified professional breeder, it's very irresponsible to intentionally bring more kittens into this already overcrowded animal world. People who adopt from you may have gone to a shelter and helped to relieve their overcrowded conditions. Millions of unwanted kittens are destroyed every year because there simply is no home for them. Breeding for profit is not what it seems. You will becoome what's known as a "backyard breeder". You must have purebred papers for your female and she must be of excellent quality and health. If she refuses to mother the kittens, you'll be up every 2 hours for 5 weeks bottle-feeding the kittens. She may have a difficult pregnancy or birth and you could lose her. In addition, unaltered animals are more susceptible to cancers and health problems. Please, get a kitten if you must, but have them both altered and give a homeless shelter kitten a chance at a good life.
