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.


Save Buckshot - an abused dog!

There is this dog (I know! He\'s a dog but he\'s furry & 4-legged like us!) named Buckshot in South Carolina whose owner beats him. The neighbors have witnessed these brutal beatings & have reported it to the police to little avail. It\'s even gone before a judge who did NOTHING! Please check the link below, read the story if you have the stomache for it, and then please sign it. Of course, it would help if you could let your furriends know too. Especially your furriends on Dogster. rom-a-lifetime-of-abuse

    We signed it. WOW. There are some pretty angry ANONYMOUS signers from South Carolina who refute the charges. Makes me feel even more like this and worse is done if they can't even sign their name and tell people to "stick it up their #@%##*" and "mind their own business."

    We signed the petition. This group is good for being able to speak up and defend those who need protection. I sure hope that they remove him pretty quickley the poor thing.

    Wow. I just don't know what else to say. The neighbors need to film the abuse, if they can. The ASPCA needs to be contacted. Amelia, can we look into this one?
