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.
Kitten eats only chicken, no kitty food!
E.V. is my first kitty, ever. She is from a neighbor\'s litter, and they said she was 8 weeks and weaned on Sept 7. Vet said on Sept 10 that she was no more than 6 weeks at that time, said she was a little thin, and gave me 2 cans of Science Diet Kitten Chicken flavor and a couple syringes (I don\'t like the idea of force-feeding). She won\'t eat Science Diet canned, Whiskas (3 different flavors), Kitten Chow dry, Iams canned -- I have tried feeding her from my fingers/hand and she won\'t touch it, so I boiled some plain boneless chicken breast, and E.V. loves it! She also loves whiskas kitty milk, and won\'t eat even chicken if the milk is out. I try mixing the milk with kitty food, she will only drink the milk. I try mixing chicken with kitty food, she picks the chicken out. I know this isn\'t enough nutrition for her. She is wild at night, runs like a rocket and attacks her toys ninja-style, but I think she needs to eat better. What do I do with this picky kitty???
