Lori Gardner has been a staff author and editor at Whisker for 5+ years, and a cat mom for most of her life. She spends her days writing while three cats (and one baby) vie for her lap.


  • Bachelor of Arts, Professional Writing
  • Michigan State University


Lori has 12+ years of professional experience in marketing, strategy, writing, and editing in metro Detroit. She's been an animal lover since she could toddle and a pet parent since she could scoop a litter box. (Those days are done, thanks to Litter-Robot.) She has also fostered several sets of kittens; her youngest cat is a foster fail.
