She recently stopped writing on her cats because they move around too much and they smeared ink all over the furniture. She's worked as a professional free-lance journalist since the late 1980s, and began specializing in pet journalism in 1995. Today, she's the editor-in-chief of AdoptAShelter.com, a shop-to-donate website that benefits animal charities. In 1986, a chance event changed her forever and set her life on a new course. A family moved from their apartment, abandoning their pregnant tabby cat in the snow. Accidental midwife, Dusty received a real life lesson in the plight of unwanted pets. After she found homes for Mom and her kittens, Dusty jumped head-first into cat and kitten rescue. Over the years, she has successfully bottle fed over 800 orphan kittens, and rescued and rehomed more than 700 adults and weaned kittens. She's an associate certified cat behavior consultant and member of International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants. @Dusty_Rainbolt
