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.


Moving a blind pet to new location w/other pets

I own 2 cats that hate each other oh well, but I manage to keep the peace. One Cat is female aka Miss Sally Cat and the male aka Frankie, is blind. I have to move soon into a home with another very dominant male cat and a older very large dog. I will not be home in the day very much due to work now and am terrified on how these animals will get along plus I need to help the blind cat re-adjust? Oh goodness any advice... thank you

    If you can, I would give the blind cat a room of his own for at least a week. Do the introductions slowly with the other animals, under your supervision only, and once he is comfortable with the other pets he can start roaming about with supervision. You don't want him panicking when the dog comes by and scooting under furniture he can't find his way out of. Do your cats sleep with you? If so, your bedroom might be the obvious place to close him in, especially if you can manage roughly the same furniture arrangement you have now.
