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.

    It's usually a comfort thing, like young humans and pacifiers. I wouldn't worry about it too much unless she's not eating at all, since if she's not getting milk then she should be getting hungry.

    Miikka has also started to try and nurse from Marty. We walked in on them the other day, sitting on the chair under the kitchen table, Marty's legs spread open and Miikka suckling him. It was funny, but as long as she doesn't start biting and his nipples don't get sore or dry, it should be ok.
