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.
outraged at swiss cat fur
dont know if this is the right forum for this but i have to put it somewhere i discovered yesterday thanks to Alley cat rescue in the USA whilst trying to be a responsible pet owner in a new country that if your cat is more than 200yds from your home in switzerland (europe) it can be trapped and killed and its fur sold for making clothing blankets etc as the old wives tale is that it helps arthritis and some admit to eating whats left! when the same country makes you pass 2 tests to own a dog or if you have a social animal you have to have more than one. How can this be civilised behaviour we are not living in a third world country and i now feel very unsure about even letting her on the patio. How could i have not known this before i moved her here!
