Zombie Cats Rule the World with Dana Fredsti

Why do zombie cats rule the world? Because in the event of an apocalyptic zombie takeover, cats will always win out.... at least in best-selling author Dana Fredsti's novels. This former Hollywood actress and stuntwoman shares stories with Charly Kayle about animals in Hollywood, behind the scenes at the Feline Conservation Center north of LA, co-creating the award-winning documentary on feral cats called "Urban Rescuers", and lessons from being a long-time foster mom for cat & kitten rescues. And yes, she is famous for her zombie-infested, animal-friendly novels. The cats always survive!
