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.


Help convincing my uncle?

(Sorry if this is in the wrong place, it seemed to fit best) Basically, my uncle (and aunt and cousins) had two cats. They live way out in the country, and the cats were outdoor barn cats. He says that he meant to get them spayed, but forgot. (My grandmother also has an outdoor barn cat, but she spayed her.) Long story short, each queen cat had four babies. They now have 11 cats, as my aunt adopted a tiny orphan stray. She is an indoor cat, and will almost certainly be both spayed and declawed. (If she makes it, because she's only just started on solid food) I'm 14. We're getting one of the baby cats. Any tips on how to politely remind my uncle that he needs to get those two queens spayed before he winds up with yet more cats? :^:

    :-k Maybe when you go to pick up your kitten, you could start talking about getting yours fixed and ask him if he is still planning to get his fixed. You might want to remind him that he now has more to get fixed, because if he doesn\'t get the females done, his male kittens will breed with any and all of the females, regardless of whether they are related or not.
