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.

    Dagnabbit! I hate it when fleas put spaces in link codes.... New linky: Nutro pulls greenies I notice that they're not actually discontinuing the product. They're giving it to vets to distribute... as if that's going to make the product more safe. (insert eyeroll here)

    Greenies are vicious things. My cats hate them, as well as Nutro food. And when I clicked on the link, I got infested with feral Smileys. Nasty.

    Actually, the only reson they are pulling them from grocery, drug and mass stores, is because they want to have them be a "pet store" only item. There's no concern over safety or ingredients. When Nutro bought "Greenies"/SM Nutech, they reformulated them twice, to ensure complete safety. edit: the "veterinary only" thing is wrong, you'll still see them at all pet specialty stores, just not stores like Target, Walmart etc.
