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.
Thin cat vs. the "heavier" cat...help?
I'm so thin. I'm 5 pounds and 3 years old (full grown). My mom feeds me Nutro Max Cat Indoor cat Dry Food & Nutro Max Cat Wet Food (every other day for the wet food). I also love to eat treats and snacks, but I'm very thin. The doctor says I'm healthy, I'm just tiny and it seems impossible to fatten me up -- I may just be "small boned."
However, my one year old sister, Hadley, is 8 pounds. Mom is worried she'll start to get too heavy and living in an apartment doesn't make for much excercise.
My question is: How do you manage to keep one cat plump and also make sure the other doesn't get TOO plump?
