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.
How to get an elderly cat to start using the litter box again.
We have two cats, both females. One's getting up there in age and the other is about two years old. The younger cat enjoys attacking the older cat, climbing on top of her and biting her in the ear, chasing her around the house, butting in front of her at the water dish or food, etc. The older cat just puts up with it, doesn't put up much of a fight. Lately however, she hasn't been using the litter box properly. I read on another site where it said, "If you have more than one cat, is the cat in question intimidated or chased by one of your other cats? If so, the scared cat might feel too vulnerable to use the litter boxes in the present location." This is very much the case. What can be done to get her to use the litter box again?
