It Worked!! It Worked!!

This just in from Dogster HQ!!!!

A little over two weeks ago, we were sad to announce that we being forced to shut down our community areas. But then something incredible happened. You rallied, and refused to give up on us. You voiced your dismay to anyone who would listen. And you know what? It worked.

Today we can tell you that we are no longer shutting down the community areas of Dogster and Catster on March 3rd as was initially planned. We are developing a new plan with a new partner to keep all your favorite features running, but it may take a month to get everything finalized so thanks in advance for your patience. We will share the details with you as soon as we have them figured out.

We know you will have a lot of questions about what will happen to your pet pages, groups and forums, and we don’t have a lot of answers at this point. As soon as we know what the final plan is, you will know it too. Thanks for bearing with us, and for loving Dogster and Catster. All of this is because of you.

Your friends at Dogster and Catster HQ

P.S. We are still having an ongoing conversation in the All Paws Bulletin Group. We hope you’ll join us there. ity-features-not-shutting-down


Oh my Dogness!!! That is such pawsome news!

Just shows that when us pups rally, we can get things accomplished!


  1. I don't mean to be a wet blanket, but I sure hope the "new plan" with the "new partner" will include fixing all the broken stuff.
    Gah, so many of us have worked so hard saving pages. Some of us have taken down pet pages. New sites have started. So much water under the bridge in just these last couple of weeks. Can we go back?
    Sorry to vent here Buddy. Mommy needs to fix herself a cup of tea and settle down.

  2. Yay!

    BOL! Go figure!
    Of course this announcement comes just after Growlmy got finished coping all of our pages with your Dad's neato suggestions and advices ...well, at least they are preserved, so whatevfur happens it will be fine....ahhhhh....what a relief it is...

    Growlmy was wondering in like fashion, Zoe...her tea is on the desk...


  3. Well at least our memories have been saved whatever happens. I do agree with you Zoe that the flea infestation of the last year must be remedied. I think we will keep our account at Pets4Pals for the time being and sit back and see what happens.

    Tea. Earl Grey. Hot!!!

    1. All that work your Dad did, hours and hours, weekends! I Really appreciate all that he did. It's good to be back-uped.

      Bol! Tea. Earl Grey. Hot!!!
      Got it Capt.!

  4. I think it's great news that Dogster will continue! That's what we all wanted! I also DON'T think all the hard work, the saving, the backing-up, the new site constructions, the re-networking have been a waste of time. We learned that we should have been doing this kind of thing all along. And we learned how. Or at least, we learned who to ask if we don't know how. Most of all, we learned how much we need each other, and how much we can count on each other. We've lost a little, but gained so much!

  5. It's good news, but I's being cautious for now.
