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, www.catster.com 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.
pregnant stray turned out to be a fattypants!
When we found Asia in mid-September, the vet told us that because she was a very underweight stray who appeared to be pregnant, we should give her all the food she wanted so she would gain the weight she needed to. Since then, we've discovered that it was a false pregnancy, and then weight she was gaining wasn't growing kittens, just much-needed fat.
So the problem now is, since she's at a healthy weight and eating quality kibble, I doubt we need to give her all the food she can eat, but if I give her only the "suggested serving" on the bag, she acts like she's starving and runs around the house yowling until someone gives in and fills her dish. What should we do?
