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.


Help: I keep going to my litter box...

Help mom's freaking out. I keep going to my litter box but when mom checks it nothing seems out of the ordinary -- I'm not crying out in pain, there is no blood and I'm going to the bathroom fine. This is not normal behavior from me but I've done this once before a few months ago. Mom took me to the vet and he gave me tests and said everything seemed fine. He did give mom Clavamox in case I continue the behavior because that would be a good indicator of UTI. I haven't done it for months though. Do you think mom should give me the Clavamox now?

    Sounds like it might be a UTI, but the best bet is probably another visit to the vet to make sure it isn't something else. It's probably not good to give medication unless you are quite sure it's a UTI and not something else, as all meds can have side effects. We'll be purring for you. Please keep us posted.

    I know it sucks to go to the vet, but I think it is the best idea. Let us know what happens!
