One Match Fire private release» Catster
Of course it was only a matter of time before the popularity of Dogster forced us to make Catster. But like everything else we do it couldn't be a quick knock off, it had to relfect exactly the needs and wants of the users. We took the distinct cat attitudes and sensibilites and translated them into a color palete, design guide and vocabulary style. Not surprisingly Catster was a big hit from the moment it launched and has generated it's own faithful following. Catster already has postings from over 50 countries and is one third the size of Dogster.
