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.


Is Stanley partly feral

BB is 5 yrs old, Stanley 2-1/2.  Both neutered males.  We got Stanley at 8 weeks so he's grown up with BB.  Both are rescues.  Stanley is supposedly part Bengal & has a lot of Bengal characteristics.  My friend from the rescue group swears he is not feral, but while he can be very loving, he hates the word "no," does not like it when you make him stop doing something, and he bites.  We've had cats most of our lives and never had a biter.  We would welcome any comments or suggestions.

    Twinkle hates the word no & goes crazy when she hears it. I found out years after I adopted her that her previous owners abused her. I had to make sure not to use that word & to watch my tone when I get on to her about something. Make sure you do the same. Be consistent in how you deal with him. When he bites, maybe try ignoring him & walking off. Try giving him toys that he can bite or try catnip toys such as kitty kickers. Most cats love these. Keep him busy & entertained.
