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.
I have three cats, two of which are a little overweight. They're eating Innova Cat & Kitten. Although their weight gain isn't really due to this particular food, I'd like to switch them to something that is better for their weight management. I looked at the Innova reduced fat formula, but it has something like 44% carbohydrates! No thanks. I was thinking about EVO or Wellness CORE, but the levels of protein and fats in those foods really freak me out. I've also read a lot of reviews on how some cats have gotten very sick and developed kidney issues because of those high protein levels. All cats react differently to foods, so how do I know that my babies won't develope those same problems? I realize that foods like EVO are closest to their natural diet, besides raw, but does that neccessarily mean its best for them? I don't know what to do, does anyone have any suggestions for a good quality reduced fat food or food that will not cause them to gain anymore weight? Thanks.
