Publisher's guidelines page:

I am always interested in new ideas for I Love Cats and request that you either send a paragraph or two about your idea or the finished piece. When using the postal service, ALWAYS include a self-addressed, stamped envelope with a return address.

If accepted, I will request the story be sent via e-mail.

I am now accepting email queries and completed stories at ilovecatseditor - at - sbcglobal.net.

If you prefer, completed manuscripts to be delivered by mail to I Love Cats, c/o Lisa Allmendinger, Editor, 16 Meadow Hill Lane, Armonk, NY 10504.

I do not want poetry (as I seldom publish it) but I am interested in feature stories about cats and their owners, (no talking cats, please), interesting or odd happenings with cats, tips for cat owners, health issues, nonfiction pieces, behavior problems, that sort of thing. Please do not send stories about cats that go or live outdoors.

I'm looking for a story--preferably with photos or drawings--that is 1,000 words, tops, ideally 500-800 words. I buy all rights, since we copyright all stories.

You also must sign a consent form, which spells out all resale questions. I pay between $25-$50. Payment is upon publication.

Nonfiction pieces $25-$50. Color photos or .jpegs are always a plus, as I am usually in need of art to illustrate a story.

Short fillers are also welcome and payment is $25.

We go to press about four months ahead of the publication date and I am now looking at stories for 2007 and beyond. So, please keep that in mind when submitting stories, especially seasonal ones.

I am no longer returning photographs, so please do not send your only copy.

Please do not send any stories that have been published in other cat magazines.

I will return any unused manuscripts provided there is a SASE with your submission. I do my best to report back in 1-2 months. I hope this answers all of your questions.

Sample copies are $5. If you would like one, please send a check or money order to I Love Cats Publishing c/o Hochman Associates, 908 Oak Tree Road, Suite H, South Plainfield, NJ 07080, and write sample copy of I Love Cats on the outside of the envelope. It may take up to 30 days to receive your copy.

You can also order a sample copy on this Web site.

Thank you for thinking of I Love Cats.

Thank you for your inquiry regarding photo guidelines. I require color prints or high res .jpegs and I can only offer $25 to $50 for photos.

If you want to send .jpegs for review, please send them to ilovecatseditor - at - sbcglobal.net. No outdoor cats, please.

Possible cover shots may have props in them, but the cat must dominate the image. They must be at least 8 by 10 in size. (Digital - 8 X 10 300dpi) We love sweet eyes that beg the reader to “pet” the cover. To be considered for the cover, the image must be shot vertically.

Please send copies of your CDs/photos and not the originals and always include an SASE. Please do not send photos with a signature required.

Payment is upon publication and I am usually working 4-5 months ahead of the cover date. You will be required to sign a copyright contract.

Thank you for thinking of "I Love Cats."
