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.
Is Harness Training for Me?
Hi there, Catster Kitties!
I wanted to get some opinions from harness trained kitties.
I really like running outside when mom or dad are leaving the house. My 2 brothers & 2 sisters don\'t share this hobby with me. Mom thinks I might be good on a harness. She said she would go get me one today!
However, now she\'s worried that the rest of the felines here won\'t be happy with me if I come back from a walk smelling weird. They might also get mad if I\'m getting all mommy\'s attention while we train. I don\'t care too much for my brothers or sisters, with the exception of my fellow siamese, Jordan.
I like people more than other cats, anyway. Just call me crazy. Have any of you been through this process? Do you go out on a harness & another kitty in your house doesn\'t? Mommy doesn\'t want to disturb the kitty peace, but I think I would really like walking outside. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
