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, www.catster.com 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.
Spayed Female Cat Spraying When We go Out of Town.
My spayed female cat sprays any time she suspects I'm going out of town. For example, my boyfriend and I are going camping tomorrow night and just brought in our packs to prepare. Little One (my sweet cat) walked around the packs and camping gear for a bit then walked over to an antique chest, lifted her tail and expelled the nasty stuff right on the chest. This is not the first time she's sprayed there and I have always done my best to clean it.
She does not spray when we are at work during the day, only when she suspects we are going away. We always have a friend stop by to feed her and give her some attention when we're gone.
I love her but she's driving me a bit crazy.
Any advice on how to calm her and stop this behavior. Also, any tips for cleaning cat pee out of wood?
