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).
