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.
Kitty sick from Meow Mix!
I found this in one of my rescue sites:
This is from a friend of mine - think itâ€™s worth passing on
Here is a complaint that I just submitted to Target and to â€œMeow Mix.â€ Target refunded my money but said I had to complain separately if I wanted them to pull the product from the shelves. May be too late for many other cats.
FYI --- beware. Isla was the only one who would even touch the food and sheâ€™s very ill now. Vomiting, diarrhea, canâ€™t eat anything. Vet says, â€œfood poisoning.â€ Even Mickey-the-chowhound wouldnâ€™t touch it. I feel terrible that I let Isla eat it.
I recently returned a case of cat food after trying to feed it to my multiple cat household. Only one of six cats would touch it; the others refused. The one who ate it became violently ill and ended up in the hospital. The food was the new Meow Mix brand â€œWholesome Goodnessâ€ (or something like thatâ€¦it was a brand new variety that I was trying for the first time). I am very concerned that other cats may suffer the same fate and that their owners may not realize that it was the food making them sick. It was most definitely the food as my vet diagnosed â€œfood poisoningâ€ in my cat. Thank god she is young & healthy otherwise, or she might have died.
Thank you for considering a recall on this harmful product.
