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.

    Ollie, I wish you lived nearby so you could visit our mom too. Tabby was so good in mom's office. She was very polite and curious. She let mom pet her and hold her right away. Tabby will make a great therapy cat. Mom said she was so soft she could have pet her all day. Oh, she is really smart too. She will put a paw up if she wants to be pet. So Cute!!!!

    Thank you, Tabby! Your diary is interesting, fun and helpful! Our cat mother has read the literature, but we get to hear about training from a cat's point of view!! Good luck, and let's hear more of your adventures! be-bop cole

    I wish the same Diego! I was so happy for Tabby- I only wish I could have a great experience like that. My visit to my Nana and Pop's house was ok (it could have been a lot worse). I will keep working at it and CONGRATS again to Tabby- may you be a wonderful therapy cat!!!
