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.
switching to half dr. foster\'s canned half-dry...how?
we just ordered a case of 24 dr. foster's canned-anybody heard of them? we trust their other products-unfortunately the cases only come in one flavor, so the cats will get their fill of salmon/shrimp:))for purposes of economy, we will be mixing with dry...IAMS kitten formula for the moment, until the girls turn a year old, then we plan to upgrade to a better dry. they love canned, so that's no problem. OUR problem might be getting them to eat the dry and get enough calories so that the canned lasts long enough:-/
how much canned is enough a day? how much dry to go with it? should we mix dry to supplement, because i'm afraid if we give dry alone and also give wet they'll strike on the dry. they protested when we went back to dry after we gave canned for several days recently when we ran out of dry and the convenience store had yucky dry-i just don't feed meow mix, sorry, besides they're picky-picky on dry. when we accidentally changed types of IAMS kitten food they snubbed it for a day. i shudder at the thought of transitioning them to adult food in the coming weeks...really need to start now, i suppose, but i haven't got one picked out yet.
for now, i just need to get this issue of how to mix the wet & dry thing proportion sorted out.
