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.

Cheers,
Catster

    I signed it and passed the link on to all of my animal loving friends. YouTube is a great site, but at the same time they have to crack down on videos that depict abuse, foul language and any other kind of negative behavior!

    THat's awesome! I have a q, though, what is it banning? Because a lot of the vidoes of cats falling off things I don't think are abuse.

    But htere is nothing funny about a cat, dog, animal, or any person getting hurt. I really don't get why people think there is.:((

    We signed it over here! I really hope something gets done about it. Mum was sent an awful video a year ago on youtube, of a man hurting a dog, and there was a lin of of dead ones behind him. Youtube did nothing to take off the video. I will surely be cross posting this! 1,342

    We signed too. Thankfully we haven't seen any videos like the one Zero mentioned, that's really, really sad. I'm sorry you had to see that. :(

    Thanks Bageera! You are sweet, it was a horrifying video, but even more horrifying nothing was done about it! Ps, Mumsie and I have been cross-posting, and so far successful!!! ;c;

    Our mom has signed the petition, and will pass it on to all the animal lovers she knows. How sad and sick to think that this would actually be broadcast and considered entertainment. My mommy said she hopes there is a special place in Hell for anyone who abuses animals (and children and the elderly as well). God Bless the human who found out about this and started the petition. Please keep us posted on the results. Emma - wishing all the cats and dogs could sign as well!

    Our mommy also said she will post this message and link in a Delphi Forum she is in - \"Absolute Best Cats\". She knows we can get more signatures this way. Emma

    :-h Yes please everyone sign the petition and pass it on. A group of us started this over a month ago, and the proper authorities have been notified about the boy in the abusive video. We now have the petition that we want to get more signatures on before we deliver it to YouTube in person. |$|

    :-k If there\'s anyone out there who has a knowledge of or interest in the link between animal abuse :r and human violence :r please feel free to contact me. I am trying to write a treatise on this subject to send to news outlets to try to get them interested in this subject. Thanks!!:h:

    Do you mean how animal abuse can be linked to sociopathetic behaviour? That is my Mumsies specialty!!! (Mum: I would not call it a "specialty" yet, however, I am a Psychology student and may be able to help you out) (it's late)

    Hello everyone! I changed the goal to 2000 so we can make maximum impact. I really believe if we all work hard and spread the word we will get there in no time! Rest assured, I am working very hard to generate more support!
