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.


What kind of food do you suggest?

We are now eating Royal Canin Veterinary Diet, and we've just learned that some of them are recalled, so we would like to know if there's any kind of food you would suggest.:? Mommy would like something to help Grisou, because he had crystals in his urine. So if you could please suggest something, that would be very helpful! Purrs from us all!

    AS long as you are not eating any of the recalled foods, I would stick with the Royal Canin if you are doing well on it. On April 19 as a precautionary measure, Royal Canin USA announced a voluntary recall of eight products that contain rice protein concentrate (rice gluten): Following are the ONLY Royal Canin USA pet products that have been recalled: ROYAL CANIN SENSIBLE CHOICE® (available in pet specialty stores nationwide) - Chicken Meal & Rice Formula Senior DRY DOG FOOD - Lamb Meal & Rice Formula Puppy DRY DOG FOOD - Lamb Meal & Rice Formula Adult DRY DOG FOOD - Lamb Meal & Rice Formula Senior DRY DOG FOOD - Rice & Catfish Meal Formula Adult DRY DOG FOOD ROYAL CANIN VETERINARY DIET™ (available only in veterinary clinics) - Canine Early Cardiac EC 22™ - Canine Skin Support SS21™ - Feline Hypoallergenic HP23™ All other Royal Canin USA products are safe for dogs and cats to eat. Here is the list of RC foods NOT affected by the recall:
