About Tina

My name is Tina Barbour, and I, along with my cats Abbey and Natasha, are the authors of this blog.

We live with my husband in Altavista, Virginia.





I’ve been an adjunct English instructor, a public health educator, and a newspaper journalist. I currently am a public information specialist. I also have a freelance editing business.

As you can probably guess from the work I’ve done, I love to write and read. I love the power of words. I try to use that passion for words and communicating to help cats and other animals.

I volunteer as the website administrator for the local volunteer group that works with our county’s animal shelter to boost adoption rates.
