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.


Ever wondered what has more protein?

Have you ever looked at the labels and said how come the high quailty canned has 9% protein when the kibble has 50%? Well, actually canned has more protein (meat) and here's how to calculate it. Example: If the canned food label says that the food has 9% protein and 80% moisture, you would that that 80% moisture and subtract it from 100, which gives you 20% dry. Then take the 9% protein and divide it by 20% dry, then multilpy by 100, and you get 45% protein on a dry-weight basis.
