We spend too much time hanging around Demand Media Studios not to know each other better. Let’s fix that. Each week we’ll profile a DMS contributor or staffer and ask them 10 questions in our feature, aptly titled, 10 Things My Studio Bio Won’t Tell You.
Naomi runs a feral cat rescue, in addition to writing about pets. Here is one of her recent rescues.

1. I’m usually working hard, but when I’m hardly working, you can find me…
Running a rescue for feral cats in my area.
2. If I had to describe my work in three words, they would be….
Detailed, upbeat and caring.
3. The one thing I wish I could do well, but can’t is….
Sew. I have fashion aspirations, but I’m a klutz in this specific department. Sigh…
4. The difference between writers and editors is…
Not major. We all share a love for words.
5. If I ruled the world for a day I would…
Make the continents closer together. Grant animals the ability to talk. Can world rulers do these things?
6. I couldn’t make it through the day without…
My tuxedo cat causing chaos on my desk as I type!
7. You’ll catch me saying this phrase far too often …
“No, I mean it, this is the most adorable cat I’ve ever seen.”
8. I am saving up for…
The well-being of all of the animals in my neighborhood and in my foster care. Lots of spay/neuter appointments to schedule, lots of flea medication to apply and lots of furry mouths to feed.
9. What is your theme song for life?
Anything by Édith Piaf.
10. My favorite movie of all time is…
“The Apartment” with Shirley MacLaine.
