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\'m sure many of you remember the story of the man who got at least one cat off Craigslist to murder. He is now out on bond and there is a hearing October 17 at 8:30am at the Cadena-Reeves Justice Center, 2nd floor, north end for anyone in the area. PLEASE write a letter to the DA asking for them to aggressively pursue felony animal cruelty charges, and if convicted to seek maximum jail time, mandatory psychological counseling and a permanant ban on keeping or caring for animals ( I lifted this from the HSUS\'s letter to the DA). The address to write to is (no e-mail): MISSION STATEMENT The Bexar County District Attorney\'s Office is a team of dedicated prosecutors committed to aggressively seeking justice and the protection of the family, person and property of all the citizens of our community. Susan D. Reed Criminal District Attorney Bexar County Criminal District Attorney Bexar County Justice Center 300 Dolorosa, Fifth Floor San Antonio, TX 78205-3030

    Update. Mom talked to the DA\'s office yesterday (last minute reminder to push for the max on this sociopath) and we were told the trial has been moved to November 14th. Soooo, that gives us more time to write those letters! Please take a few minutes to write a letter to make sure people like Patterson are punished to the full extent of the law. Crimes like his need to be used as examples of how cruel people are and why it is totally unacceptable. If you get upset by animal cruelty, do something to help. Please write a letter to the Bexar County DA and use your voice to do something positive. Purrs and thanks, Jack and family
