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.
growling while grooming kitten
I hope someone here can explain to my mommy why I am growling. We got a new kitten in October, at first I didn\'t pay much attention to her.
But for the past several weeks, when she rubs up against me I will wash her, or if I am resting and she comes and plops down beside me, I\'ll give her a bath. But, the entire time I am washing her I make a weird noise in my throat that sounds like I am growling. Its definitly not a purr noise.
Why am I doing this? If I like the baby why I am growling and if I don\'t like the baby why I am washing her?
ps we play sometimes and I don\'t make the noise then:-k
