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.

    We've sent an email about these petitions, especially the GA gas chamber one to a lot of people tonight. I'm hoping we get more signatures from that & they tell more people, etc. I'm glad you posted these important petitions. I had heard of the gas chambers before but didn't realize how cruel they were. I thought I was going to get sick. Lance, Joey & their hooman

    any time they need to put animals down due to overpopulation , esp this time of year at a shelter is heartbreaking, we do our part in rescue and transports,i personally think the heart stake is the worst possible means to get this done, how cruel is this.... it makes us all cry,please spay neuter and rescue to save any pet from this horrible fate

    I dont remember seeing this post when it originally posted, but I was sure to go on the sites and sign the petitions, all three. But, as I posted on all three commentaries, its a really sad day when you have to sign a petition to get people to stop putting animals in the gas chamber. When are we going to learn?:?

    Aw.. I signed the petions and and watched the video. And cried. Do you ever feel guilty for being part of the human race when you watch stuff like this?

I have a new video series "Land of the eagle" about american history/wildlife and what happened to how beautiful North America was.....:( and will never be again.:(( Its sick that the last stronghold of the Gray wolf has to be plundered like this land was hundreds of years ago...gosh you'd thnk we've learned something sense then.:r

    When I think of how much I spend, and how hard I work to keep my Willow happy and healthy...then I hear of how other animals are needlessly put to death, it makes me feel numb with rage. This has to stop. I'm grateful for all the wonderful people who signed these petitions before me. I will sign all three, too. Thank you to the person who posted these here in the first place. Love, Ger, on behalf of Willow and all his kin.

    I'm not sure if my earlier post got recorded. Anyway, thanks very much to Ashlye for drawing our attention to this. I'm very proud that Willow is so beautiful, and catches people's eyes when I post his picture on my networking pages. I'll use this advantage of his, to draw attention to the plight of his fellow animals. After all, Willow was once a stray, too. Look how gorgeous he is, now. He's such a sweet and loving pet. All animals need to be given the chance that Willow was given. More power to the people who care enough about animals to actually do something about their suffering.
