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.

I think there is something wrong w/ Cat Soup. She doen'st eat very much and has lost ALOT of weight. She also has some kind of scaby thing on both back legs. She has gotten blister looking things on her lip and inside her mouth but they went away. My husband just lost his job and I don't have one, so we don't have the money to take her to the vet. Does anyone know whats wrong w/ her or having any ideas as to what we should do?

    Here's some of the things I could think of: Cat herpes (yes, they can get it) FIV Cancer Renal failure Liver failure Or a big infection of some sort. All of which are extreme cases. Sorry to break it to you, but you do need a vet. These diseases are contagious and could possibly kill you. Praying for you.|:|

    Somewhere on Catster there is a post for vet financial aide. For the sake of your cat, check it out. You sound like good candidates for help on the vet bill.
