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.

    In my opinion you should take Callie into the vet just for a general check up. There might be nothing wrong - Alaidh went through a month or so at that age where she refused to play and the vet never found anything wrong, but it's better to be safe than sorry. Most, but not all, cats play well into their adulthood - especially when they're indoor cats and don't hunt. Alaidh only stopped playing this year...and that has a lot to do with me taking her catnip makes her Oh...and she's 18 now.

    I agree that maybe a vet check to rule out any problems is not a bad idea. Some cats are just more playful than others. My brother BeeJay would play briefly with new toys, but not a lot. I personally like to attack my purple mousie from time to time and mom got me a new laser light that is fun. Some cats are also more vocal than others, so as long as the morning sounds don't seem to be pain related the cat might just be telling you how their night went. Bella is quite a talker any time she's awake.
