Heather Marcoux

Heather Marcoux is a pet mom, writer and former journalist. She waited many years to become a pet parent, and after being blocked by numerous landlords she finally got to adopt her beloved Ghost Cat. Her biggest reason for buying real estate was so that no one can ever again tell her that she can’t have a pet (or paint).

Ghost Cat was her first adoptee. Specter the kitten and GhostBuster the dog followed.

What I Do for a Living: I used to work in television news, but eventually the constant Ron Burgundy references drove me to a new career.

What I Do for Fun: Sleep and write. Obsess over haircuts I know I will never actually get.

The Furry Members of My Household Are: Ghost Cat was an only child for many months, but Specter and GhostBuster ruined that for her.

My Favorite Things to Write About Are: Cats, cosmetics and current events.

My Pet Peeves Are: Excessive movie quotation and gluten.

My Guilty Pleasures Are: RoboCop. Both 1987 and 2014. Not the sequels of the TV show, though! I also enjoy various forms of sugar, especially the kinds that make me break out.

How I Deal with Cat/Dog Hair: If I have a really nice outfit on, I just put my coat on before I let them crawl all over me.

What I Want to Be When I Grow Up: I’m pretty much living the dream already.
