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.

    I have moved my poor cats' litter boxes so many times I'm surprised they remember where they are! The most importants things are to keep the same litter and box, and when you place his box, make sure it's in as secluded a locastion as it can be (my cats' boxes are in the spare room closet). Show him where the box is. Give him a few pats and ear skritches and tell him what a good kitty he is, his mother loves him and speaks about him still, and that YOU also love him and you're certain he won't find any place to "go" except his litter box. Moving is traumatic for everyone, especially animals. Try to keep your routine in the new apartment as similar to the old apartment as you can.
