Adoptable Cats Site Improvements
Meow! Meow! We’ve been working round the clock here at Catster HQ to bring you some new, very important, site improvements in order to specifically help our furry friends who need to be adopted. We’re really excited that we were able to make these changes and hope that they lead to lots of kitties finding their furrever homes!
A quick rundown of the changes:
* We’ve added a way for logged in members to directly contact the guardian of a cat that’s up for adoption via their pet page! If you check out an adoptable cutie like Mommy Calico you’ll see a new field called “Adoption Contact” at the top of her bio. Clicking on the link takes you to a form that allows potential adopters to e-mail the pet owner directly! (note: if you don’t see the Adoption Contact field on the page, give the kitty a treat and it should magically appear)
* We did a massive clean up of adoptable cat profiles and changed the “Adopt Me” stroll so that it sorts by most recently updated profile. Check it out!
* When a new adoptable cat is added to Catster, the Community Manager receives an e-mail to review the page to make sure it’s legitimate so we can keep the bad kitties out.
We’ve also made some changes in the forums that we hope will foster lots of great information sharing, positivity and happy endings. We added new forum topics like “Choosing the Right Cat” and made some changes to a few existing forum topics related to Adoption and Rescue. Thanks to all of the Catsters who gave us great feedback in order to make these changes happen!
We really are so excited and impressed by how shelters, rescue organizations and private rescue folks have been using the site lately. There are so many amazing new pet pages for adoptable cats! We want to do everything possible to make Catster a purrrfect place for the kitties and the people who care about them and will stil be working on some more new ideas (there’s another furrrbulous one coming soon…shhhhh ;))
Big meows to all of you from Catster HQ!
