Meet the Editors
Associate Editor Lindsay Hanks always is on the lookout for new toys to entertain Zoe, her rambunctious family cat with a penchant for trouble. She enjoys laid-back nights watching television together side-by-side, when Zoe’s not doing back-flips off the walls.


The Cat Fancy Magazine editors
Art Director Jerome Callens makes his living so he can support his 4-year-old black cat Onyx, who is hooked on catnip toys, and his tubby 17-year-old Siamese mix Egypt,
who is hooked on belly rubs.

Editor Susan Logan looks forward to her cup of coffee every morning and glass of wine every evening with her two cats, Ragdoll Chloe and Tonkinese Chamois, curled up beside her. It’s the perfect way to start and end each day.

Managing Editor Annie Shirreffs lives with her husband and their cat Owen, a polydactyl domestic longhair. As a lifelong cat lover and owner, she has mastered the fine art of doing just about anything with a cat in her lap.
