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.

    How long has it been since you've made poops? With raw, we have found we make poops less often than before. I may go once a day or every other day. Also, if you're getting too much bone in your diet then that can cause you to become a little constipated. Your mom can try adding more muscle meat to your diet if this is the case. If you like it, canned pumpkin works both ways for poop problems and can help get things moving.

    My mum wants to warn you that garlic is a member of the onion family and *never* should be given to kitties! It can cause anemia! I got backed up when we first started raw as well, my mum reduced the amount of bone I was eating and force fed me some icky orange stuff (note from mum: pure canned pumpkin) which helped things move through again! No problems since!
