Irvine, California (December 22, 2014)
- Cat Fancy and Dog Fancy, celebrating their 50th and 45th anniversaries respectively, will be remodeled in early 2015 to include the same high-quality news and entertainment that pet parents have come to love â€“ plus much more. I-5 Publishing, the worldâ€™s largest media network catering to pet parents, has taken these beloved magazines and will be relaunching them as Catster and Dogster magazines. The magazines will take content cues from their popular namesake websites and online magazines, which have been successfully publishing since 2004.
â€œWith our recent acquisition of Catster.com and Dogster.com, the greatest brands in pet care were joined under one company,â€ comments Vice President of Consumer Marketing Beth Freeman-Reynolds. â€œWe felt the time was right to blend them into amazing magazines.â€
Catster and Dogster magazines will offer a vibrant layout combined with coverage of the hottest topics from top names in the cat and dog world such as â€œAmericaâ€™s Veterinarianâ€ Dr. Marty Becker and training authority Victoria Stilwell. They will provide both humorous and sympathetic perspectives on pet ownership in conjunction with expert advice on pet products, health, diet, travel and more, providing a welcome mix for pet parents juggling busy lifestyles.
â€œItâ€™s all the content our readers love but so much more,â€ said Senior Editorial Director Melissa Kauffman. â€œWeâ€™ll be sharing more great photos, more products, more lifestyle stories and more expert advice â€“ everything caring pet parents could ask for.â€
These new magazines will be offered bi-monthly to newsstand buyers and subscribers with Dogsterâ€™s premiere issue available 2/24/15 and Catsterâ€™s first issue debuting on 3/24/15. Current readers will enjoy a seamless transition to Catster and Dogster from these classic magazines, with no interruption in subscriber services.
