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.


Tea for Mew and Mew for tea?

My human loves to drink green tea, and quite frankly so do I. Even though she changes my water and cleans the bowl twice a day (once in the morning and once in the evening) And I do drink that water, but I just love to sneak up and slurp down some of what she's drinking as long as it isn't too hot and the cup is mostly full. She's started drinking her tea out of a bottle so I can't get at it! :-k Now she won't let me drink hers because she doesn't think it's a good idea for us to share. And also she sometimes uses Splenda to sweeten it a bit and she doesn't think it would be good for cats. (But she doesn't bother if it's Celestial Seasonings Lemon Zinger Green, YUM!) Tea is supposed to be all sorts of good for peoples, is it good for us cats too?

    Green tea has a lot of caffeine in it, which is bad for cats.

    That's what I thought. Sticking with the bottles. Thanks. :)

    De-caffeinated green tea? They sell it here at our grocery store. I also know that there are some places that sell tea made just for pets. Check with a veterinarian first because there are some herbs in tea that may be toxic to kitties.
