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.


Weird stuff in litter box

Hey guys, I was cleaning out the cat boxes today and in one of them, I found a bunch of little things that resembled those spiral pasta noodles. My first thought was 'oh expletive, worms!' especially as it appeared someone had had a touch of diarrhea that morning as well. Then I calmed down and realized they didn't look like any kind of worms I had ever heard of. So I have decided to keep watch for a few days and not rush in to the vets unless I see them again. Maybe someone just ate some weird object lying on the floor. But until then, maybe someone can reassure my mind as to what the heck I might have seen?

    You may want to take the "worms" into your vet to have them determine what they may be. if they feel they need to examine the cats, they will let you know. Purrs

    OOh, I had some of those a few months back! Mine looked like rice, and mommy bought some pills at the petstore that made me all better. Does yours look like rice?
