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.

    You need to give your girl extra attention, treats and toys during this process, or she will get jealous. Getting a friend of the opposite gender is good. He should live in the bathroom for her to get a chance to sniff him out and until you flea-treat him. He needs a blanket, litter box, toys, food and water bowls, and a couple of hours of daily attention from you. SUPERVISED VISITS ARE A MUST until you are sure that they are not going to fight after you leave the premises. FYI, dropping treats like SmartBites on their heads, along with a half glass of water, is a good way to stop an altercation. I got a new kitten less than two months ago, and she never had to be separated from the others. They are 14 1/2, 7 and 8. They still hiss at her and let her know she's in their way, but I picked according to personality and gender so there wouldn't be any major issues... and there aren't. ^_^
