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.

Hey everyone, If you, or anyone you know use this brand of food -- stop immediately. It has killed several dogs/cats in my state. Please read and pass it on. This came from my local news site ( I also tried to go to the Diamond Pet Food site and they are no longer on the web (at least during this tragedy). Diamond Pet Food is recalling Diamond, Country Value and Professional brand dog and cat food after discovering aflatoxin in a product manufactured at a facility in Gaston, S.C. Aflatoxin is a naturally occurring toxic chemical byproduct of mold, which can cause sickness in pets. The pet food was distributed to Alabama, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, West Virginia, Vermont, and Virginia. The following products manufactured at the Gaston facility have been removed from sale: * Diamond Low Fat Dog Food * Diamond Hi-Energy Dog Food * Diamond Maintenance Dog Food * Diamond Performance Dog Food * Diamond Premium Adult Dog Food * Diamond Puppy Food * Diamond Maintenance Cat Food * Diamond Professional Cat Food * Country Value Puppy * Country Value Adult Dog * Country Value High Energy Dog * Country Value Adult Cat Food * Professional Chicken & Rice Senior Dog Food * Professional Reduced Fat Chicken & Rice Dog Food * Professional Adult Dog Food * Professional Large-Breed Puppy Food * Professional Puppy Food * Professional Reduced Fat Cat Food * Professional Adult Cat Food

    We saw the Diamond food recall on MSNBC Nightly tonight. Their web site, lists the Diamond, Professional and Country Value food for both dogs and cats and the distribution cities, but I just called my local shelter (they get freebies from various pet food manufacturers) and they said they don\'t get those brands but a man today came in to the shelter saying his dog was sick and he WAS feeding the dog Diamond brand. Our shelter director did not know of the recall at the time so she gave him some food our shelter had and told him to stop feeding Diamond to his dog. After I told her she said she would call him back to take his dog to the vet. We\'re in Illinois and according to the posted list Illinois isn\'t on it, but apparently it is, so I would be hesitant re any of those brands. Also Cosco \"Kirkland\" brand pet foods and Chicken Soup Brand Dog Food may also be on the list. Chicken soup also makes Nutra Nuggets. Pets have died from eating these brands and testing is being performed to see if these brands also are toxic.
