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.


Help! My cat is hiding and I can't find her.

I am very worried about my cat. She virtually lives in the basement and usually hides in the rafters or other places I can't reach her. She comes out to eat and hang out but there are times I don't see her for 2 or 2-1/2 days (tops) Now it has been almost 3 days and no sign of her. I have two other cats (and two dogs) so it's hard to gauge whether she's sneaking out to eat, drink and potty.There haven't been any changes in household in the last few days. I've been using a Feliway diffuser for almost a month and I thought it was working. I was seeing her more often and she didn't immediately dash away. I added another today as well as trying to lure her out with salmon, sardines, name it. I'm terrified that she's trapped somewhere but she's been doing this for years so why would she suddenly get trapped?  I've used a flashlight to search every possible place I can reach. Please, does anyone have any ideas how to lure her out? It can't be normal for her to hide for this long. HELP!
