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.

My little cat "Murder" passed away in between the deaths of my mother and my estranged, but very best friend still, husband. With a total of 3 deaths in less than a month I had vowed to not grow attached to any thing else. Unfortunately, the home I share with my adult son seemed to grow very lonely. So one day I mentioned to him that I was thinking of getting a new cat and naming it "Mayhem" and immediately his girlfriend caught some of the ferals that seem to live outside of her house. It had all happened too quickly...suddenly the thought of another cat scared me...how could I suffer the loss again? Unfortunately, due to my hesitation my son's girlfriend let the ferals go and they disappeared for good. Shortly thereafter I started to think about getting a cat again and I started to look for cats at my local Pet Smart, cats that would be called "Mayhem", the cat I found would have to fit the name. One day I went in and they had a big fluffy cat that reminded me of Murder and I got all excited. I went home and talked to my whole family about the cat. Finally, I asked my fiance, Matthew, if we could go to Pet Smart, once again, and he said yes. Still scared of making a decision alone, I asked my son if he would go and then, he asked his friend that had just come over to go with us too. Needless to say, four people went over to look at the cat. When we got there the fluffy cat ignored me. The fluffy cat ignored Matthew. The fluffy cat growled. It did not like any of us! But in a cage at the other end were two little tiny kittens a Tortie and an orange and white short hair. My son said..."hey mom...look at this cute little kitten it looks like a "Mayhem". Needless to say that little kitten was Mayhem. In trying to decide what to do I ended up calling my oldest daughter and her husband to come see the kitten. Everyone had to help me decide...everyone had to let me know it was okay. In the end Mayhem came home! I am so glad I made the decision to get her as she ended up being very very sick with a upper respiratory infection that turned into kitty pneumonia, and needing very special attention. Eye dropper fed water and Gerber brand cat food off a spoon became Mayhem's saviors coupled with tender loving care she got better.
