I just found out that Cat Fancy Magazine is ceasing publication. A friend sent me this very sad link: Who Killed Cat Fancy?”
It’s a good article. But it’s sad. Cat Fancy was started in 1965, the year I was born. The last issue I got in the mail – just this week, in fact – had an overall tone of excitement for its 50th year in print. Apparently, the announcement that they were closing down came before presstime.
I’ve had a subscription to Cat Fancy, off and on, since I was about 10. It was never my favourite – I actually preferred Cats Magazine, which was an East Coast-based publication geared more towards breeders and showing – but I still loved Cat Fancy and appreciated its arrival in my mailbox every month. I have a subscription through 2016, and was actually just considering extending it.
Evidently, the magazine is being reborn as “Catster“…but it won’t be the same.
