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.


Parent wants to get rid of my cat if he wont stop peeing on everything. Please help.

We have took him to the vet and they said nothing is wrong. We lock him up in a big cage at night with a litter box and he will use it but then when we let him out he pees on the stove,counter,table,ect. He will poop in the litter box and always has. he is 2 and is neutered. we have tried putting vinegar in a bowl to keep him away and he peed in the bowl. he is full out peeing and not spraying. please help.

    Usually cats are trying to tell you they're displeased when they do this. Have you tried putting out a second box somewhere for him to pee in? Many cats prefer to poop in one, pee in another. Locking him up may actually be upsetting him and he's doing this to say so :( is his food/water far from his box? (they don't like to eat where they eliminate!) does he have his own area to call his own? (kitty condo, cat shelf, empty open drawer, shelf in front of a window to see the world go by.) does he get enough stimulating playtime and attention so he's not bored and frustrated?
