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.

Mom is afraid that if that is all I eat, I will get sick, but I would really like it if I could have a whole bunch 3 times a day. Is there anywhere that states if a cat can be healthy eating mostly shrimp? I am peeing more, but there is a lot of water in shrimp , mom thinks . Anyone know for sure?

    To make sure you get all the nutrients you need, you have to have much more variety in your diet. The more varied, the better! Do you eat kibbles, canned, or raw? What worries me about eating mostly shrimp, I don't know about the taurine levels, and you definitely need enough of that, as well as calcium, and a number of other vitamins and minerals.

    This is Delyte. I LOVE shrimp and would do anything for them. But you have to be careful with people food that they have not added salt to them, which is very bad for us, and of course you cannot live on seafood because of the taurine problem. Have your person check to see if there is added sodium or anything added to them.
