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.


When I pee, my furs get wet.

After I go pee, the furs on my behind are wet. My mommy thinks it's because my fur is longer around there, so she follows me around with tissues so that I don't sit my wet behind down on anything. Should she get me, um, trimmed down there? Do they do brazilian waxes for cats (lol). I am neutered but I still have remnants of being a boy, so I don't know if that's why. Any thoughts?:r

    Usually, after they go pee, they usually lick their bee-hind, kinda like us ladies have to wipe ourselves, and it would be wet there, if we didn't. :D Does he not lick his bee-hind after he goes pee? :D If your concerned about him sitting on something, when he is wet, you can use unscented baby wipes, just make sure there is no alcohol in them. :D He is SH, so not really as much of an issue, if he were LH. I definately would not get him trimmed back there, mol. Not sure what you mean about him being neutered, but still remenents of him being a boy. He is still going to have balls, they just suck the sack out, so now the balls are smaller, but they are still there. :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

    My other cat (now deceased) didn't have balls. Maybe he was neutered before they decended? Anyway I thought that could be part of the problem. Milo does wash up, but he's blue russian and has a double coat, and he has a layer of longer fur as well as short fur. Sometimes, his bum is wet. I have to watch to see if he washes up immediately. I just never had this problem with my other boy.

    I had fluffy pants and a groomer showed mom something she called a "sanitary cut". Basically a trim in the behind area. Worked for me ;) I was unneuterd for 10 years and neutered for almost another 14 and it didn't make much of a difference in wet furs either way. Purrrrs, Biscuit

    I have gotten the sanitary trim a couple of times and it was good. Not only did it help with the pee pee, but I no longer after pooping MOL.
