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.


Is there a good place/forum on Catster to post about a lost kitty?

My Mom's kitty went missing and we are heartsick. I am hoping the Catster family can help us spread the word and find her. Thank you in advance! <3

    Oh, no! I am so sorry! I've seen Catsters edit their cat's profile and add "missing" to the name. But, since we are a nationwide website, unless someone in your neighborhood also belongs to Catster and sees her profile, the odds are against your finding her here. If you haven't already, in your area, notify animal control (through the police), vets, local shelters and rescues, and check at the big box pet stores to see if they have a "lost & found" board. When I lost Lily, I did all those things and put notices on stop signs, etc. Include a photo, of course. You can also check around your mom's and her neighbors' yards. If she's not used to being out, she will hide. Look under things like decks, porches, campers, cars, boats, bushes, etc. Sometimes it's easier to do it at night with a flashlight b/c their eyes glow in the dark, but make sure the neighbors know you're there and what you're doing. We will say a prayer for your Mom's kitty to return. Please let us know what happens!
