Dear Dogster reader,

Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Dogster 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 Dogster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.

Dogster 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 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.

    Does your cat *need* a bath for any particular reason? Did she get into something foul? If that's the case and she won't let you subject her to a rinse off with a tiny dab of baby shampoo you can use some wet paper towels to wipe off most of it. Use caution with wet wipes, particularly anything scented and meant for human use, as those fragrances can be very offensive and even potentially harmful to a cat with their delicate systems. If someone in your house has allergies there are safe, unscented wet wipes specifically for pets that can be found in the grooming section of most specialty pet stores that can be about as helpful as a full bath. And if allergies aren't a concern and kitty isn't covered in filth- don't worry about it! Cats are naturally quite fastidious creatures that spend a lot of their free time successfully grooming themselves and mostly just need your assistance with brushing/grooming to remove loose hairs so they don't get hairballs.

    You can use wet wipes made for cats. Another option is PETfection Deodorizer/Allergy Spray. I found it to work well at cutting odors and grease. It will also help with dry skin. With this you can spray it on her daily and rub down into her fur. It is 100% Organic too so you won't have to worry about any toxic chemicals. :) Hope this helps!
