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.

Hello, I\'m kinda new here. Mommy and Daddy are thinking about bringing home a new kitty next month and about trying for a baby in August. Mommy is really worried about how I\'m going to react. Any suggestions or words of encouragement would be greatly appreciated to help set mommies mind at ease.

    A good obgyn will not want mommy to change the cat box at all. If Daddy will be 100% responsible for the box from the time you start trying for a human baby until 6 wks after the baby comes home (washing his hands afterwards as well) then go for it! Kittens and babies are wonderful miracles!

    It really depends on the type of kitty you are. Having a new child in the house is stressful enough without adding a kitten to the mix. I know if mom brought a new kitty home when she also had the human baby, I would've never come out of hiding. Personally I would stick with one new addition at a time. you are inevitably going to get less attention when the human arrives, but you certainly do not want even less attention because there is a new kitten around. Just my 2 cents!
