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.
We adopted a 4 month old kitty last weekend. I wanted my year-old son to have a pet so he understood animals. They seem to have adjusted well to each other but it seems to be me that has the problem. For one thing, she doesn't seem to ever clean her butt (it always stinks and she always has it in my face). She also pooped on one of our chairs tonight and ruined it. We got her a self cleaning litter box yesterday but I saw her poop in it twice the first few hours we had it. She's a very sweet, affectionate cat but I already have a baby to take care of. I don't want to give her back to the cat rescue but she's stressing me out. We got so much stuff to prepare for her. I feel like a failure.
