The “Celebrity Cat Lover of the Month” is awarded to exceptional celebrities chosen by the cats of The Cat Mag. To win this prestigious award the celebrity must have shown outstanding cat love over an extended period.
Taylor Swift was our obvious first choice and was unanimously voted as the very first “Celebrity Cat Lover of the Month”.
Frank L. Whiting, founder, publisher, senior editor and art director says, “Taylor Swift has of course won numerous awards, but we are pretty sure she will be most proud of this one! After all lots of other people have won Grammys, Peoples Choice Awards, Billboard Music Awards and whatever, but only Taylor Swift has won “Celebrity Cat Lover of the Month”!”
What makes this award even more unique is we’re not just giving some generic statuette or plaque. The Cat Mag teamed up with Rebecca Fischer of Beccavision to create unique pieces of art that our winners will treasure forever!
Rebecca perfectly complements the idea behind “Celebrity Cat Lover of the Month”. Beccavision isn’t just art, it’s love! Rebecca Fischer, Beccavision artist and owner, puts her heart and soul into every piece of work she does. The same qualities we look for in choosing our award winners.
Taylor’s award features her cats Olivia and Meredith expressed in the bright, whimsical colors and the swirling lines that gives Rebecca’s art a truly unique character.
Join us in congratulating Taylor Swift as the very first recipient of this prestigious award.

Frank L. Whiting announced today that Olivia Ashley-Cooper has agreed to join The Cat Mag as a product reviewer. Dame Olivia, as she prefers to be known, said, “As a member of the British aristocracy, I am used to only the very best products. My reviews will be tough but fair. I won’t accept anything but the best quality products, as even the lowliest cat should not have to accept anything less than the best.”
(Dame Olivia has never met a lowly cat, but feels her education in both England and Switzerland has provided her with a well balanced perspective as to how “The other half” should live!)
It’s Halloween so keep your cats indoors tonight! Along with the kids, all the crazies are out tonight, some of whom think it’s great fun to torment cats, especially black cats!
The amount of people out and about on Halloween, along with increased vehicular traffic can make the outdoors a frightening and unsafe place for cats.
If possible keep your cats in a closed room, in case they panic and slip out when trick or treaters come to the door. Even the calmest cat can become upset at endless doorbell ringing and voices shouting “Trick or treat!” Enjoy the night but try to avoid stressing your cats.
The Cat Came Back has been newly recorded by Ryan Seacat and The Muddy Bottom Tom Cat Stompers. Ryan discovered The Stompers on a recent trip to Louisiana where he was tracing his family’s roots. Said Ryan, “I always felt an affinity for southern food and my favorite movie was Deliverance, so it comes as no surprise to discover I have roots in the south.”
The Muddy Bottom Tom Cat Stompers have long been a staple of the music scene in Louisiana. When asked to define their music they said it was difficult to CATegorize! But their influences include Bluegrass, Catgrass, Catnip and Country!
Check out The Cat Came Back here:
The Muddy Bottom Tom Cat Stompers are – Ginger Tom Baker – Drums, Paul McCatney – Bass, Plucky Paws – Banjo, Charlize Daniels – Fiddle and Ryan Seacat vocals.
The Cat Came Back is the first of 12 songs to be recorded for the new album. Asked if he was planning on touring to support the new album Ryan Seacat said, “I would love to tour with this group. We would like to play small clubs across the country but my manager wants to book larger venues, possibly as an opening act for Katy Perry or Beyonce! I know Katy is a cat lover and I’m sure Beyonce would love me.”
Spokesmen for Katy Perry and Beyonce have so far not commented.
Other acts that have been mentioned are the Rolling Stones, Elton John, Miley Cyrus, and Andrea Bocelli . Ryan added, “It’s too early at this point to make a final decision, but I would like to play in Times Square on New Years Eve. And although I haven’t met the Pope, I’m sure he would like us to play the half time show during his Christmas Message at The Vatican. Imagine the ratings we could bring him for that show!”
A spokesman for the Pope was unavailable for comment!
