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.


My 10 year old cat has started peeing and pooping everywhere. What's wrong?

I recently gave him a flea treatment, could this be the cause or is it something else. Please help!

    Did you have any recent changes in your household? Did you move, buy anything new, bring a child home, bring any new pets home or change the litter/ the place where the box was before? Think about it and try to see if any such change comes to mind. If nothing ...absolutely nothing has changed.. then think about what he does when he goes to the litterbox.. does he yowl or strain? Sometimes due to underlying medical condition, say for instance like arthritis he might not be able to get the posture right. Any pain he gets when he goes into the box, he will assume ..ow this box hurts I wont do it there.. so you need to think like a cat here. If nothing has changed, please have him looked at by a vet to ensure there is nothing medical going on. if there was some change then try to bring his routine back to normal. Let me know how it goes. thanks and good luck.
