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.


Orlando Winter Park

Hi Catsters my son just took in a feral cat, and I am wondering if there any low cost vets in the winter park area. I want to make sure she(?) gets her shots. I live in WI, so I can't do much other than help pay for the vet apt., but I can't afford a lot. Any ideas? Would a feral group come and do it, as well as the other cats by him? I know they came out a few years ago and give shots, and the "operation" to the cats there, but now that he took her in I wasn't sure. He said she still has some wild in her, but after feeding her she made the choice to stay unlike the other cats who leave after they are done eating, one thing led to another and now he has a cutie pie living with him.

    She is not considered a feral cat if he can handle her- she is considered a "stray" cat. She was probably someone's pet in the past that got booted out the front door. Unfortunately it happens all too often. Here's a list of feral AND low cost spay/neuter clinics by state. This article may be of interest to you too... its about turning a feral cat into a house kitty.

    He wants to keep it. She/he (they haven't figured that out yet) picked him-followed him home and hasn't left she hangs out with the feral cat population by his place. Mommy wants to help with bills, but can afford only so much because of us.
