PortraitDusty Rainbolt is Product Reviewer for Catnip, former Product Editor for Whole Cat Journal, and an award-winning writer. She became involved in kitten rescue in 1986 when she cared for an abandoned pregnant cat. She found homes for mom and the kittens but kept her two favorites: Chani and Wretched. She had no idea that one act of kindness would later bless her with a career writing about cats. She and her husband, Weems, have been raising orphans ever since. In a small way they also helped elevate the Turkish Van breed to championship status in the Cat Fanciers' Association.
