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.
I have a kitten (almost 5 months) and a 9-year-old cat. I recently joined an animal rescue group and today picked up a 6-7 week old kitten to foster. I brought her home and my older cat smelled her and hissed ... no big deal. But my kitten was so excited. She started chasing the new kitten and standing over her (the little one fits under her legs) and pinning her down. She bites some, but she also licks her. It\'s not that she\'s being mean, she seems to just want to play hard (she\'s pretty rough). The little kitten does not like this and tries to hide. I put her in a large bathroom (with litter, food, water, bed). I\'m not going to keep the kitten ... it\'s just a foster situation, though I have no idea how long it will last. Should I just leave her in the BR for a few days and just spend time with her there? How can I get my older kitten to ease up and not be so rough?
