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.

    edited 27 February, 2006 - that is a great site with lots of information about what we think is the best foods. They make Innova cat food and California Natural Pure and Simple chicken and rice dry food, which is what I eat. No artificial colors or flavors! Mommy says you could look at Nutro brand too, she heard that is a good brand.

    We agree with Sulieman! We eat Innova Evo and our vet agreed that it's one of the best foods out there (they can't say it's THE best without getting into trouble. hehe). It's the highest protein food out there, so it keeps the acid level in the urine high and that'll keep the crystals at bay, plus it's the closest to a raw diet that you can get without actually going raw. Our vet also said that it's totally appropriate for young cats too. It's expensive, but well worth the extra cost - our bodies process it well, so our poohs are small and they're not even very stinky. And our coats are shiny and soft, and we're just way more healthy than before!

    EVO is definitely a very good food, for dry, since it is the only dry food that doesn't contain grain. However, canned food is more like a cat's natural prey texture-wise and ingredients-wise (if you buy premium quality -- meat based). We eat several high quality ones that our mommy has researched forever, including Precise, PetGuard, Pet Promise, Natural Balance. There are others too. Just be sure you avoid any foods with garlic!!!

    We love our Nutro Natural Choice. There is Adult and Kitten kibble. Mom says she has noticed a remarkable difference in out coats and overall health since we have been eating it. (about a yr now) Havent ever tried Evo although we've heard good things about it.
