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.
Vet says she\'d be comfortable spaying Velcro
Velcro went in for her re-evaluation yesterday, the vet said she looked "one hundred times better" regarding herpes than the last time she came in; we think it was a combination of the antibiotics, diet, lysine, and the fact that we moved out our two drama queen renters---which was hard because the one was blood related family and the police refused to help when my mother said she wanted to evict them because they were causing serious problems. The vet said that she has very little congestion and that the herpes may very well be dormant now.
I'm still going to see if the shelter will do it because a friend of mine paid to have her altered, and I don't want to waste her money. It's not about the cost of a spay since my income has improved now, it's that I don't want my friend thinking she's been ripped off. Though if the humane society won't do it I'll be sending a money order for the cost of the spay at the shelter to my friend and then have her spayed through VCA animal hospital, which is where her vet works.
