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.


Cat urinating on bed.

My cat has a bad habit of urinating on my bed, and only my bed. She does not do it anywhere else. At first she was diagnosed with a urine infection of which was cleared up with meds. Even after the meds, she still continued to urinate on my bed. I took her to the vet again, but they said there is nothing wrong with her. I have tried a few things to get her out of this habit. Making sure her litter is clean, giving her a lot of affection, rubbing her nose in the urine such as you would with a dog, etc. Nothing seems to work. Any suggestions to get her out of this bad habit?

    the last thing you want to do is try to punish a cat. most likely she was either going there in the attempt to alert you to the fact she feels the need to claim her territory or more likely her urinary issues were either so urgent she couldnt help it or she thought you would act on her behalf and help. either way she can still smell the urine as another place to go. have you flipped your mattress, after cleaning cat spot well? let me know
