FYI: Kelly announced on Twitter that due to the large volume of queries she's receiving since moving to Rees Lit Agency, she'll be moving to a "No Response means No Interest" policy, starting September 1. Any queries she receives before then will still receive a response!

I CNRed this a month ago because I thought she only responds to queries she wants to request. But then I got a form rejection as of 8/11/2019....

**EDIT** I deleted my comments because I didn't realize they would cause her such grief. I never said she hates cats or was not open to any cat characters; what I said was (poorly worded, as obvi my attempt at levity didn't land well), I have a cat MC and since she's not a cat fan, I'm CNRing. What I perhaps should have also said was, I usually do CNR after 60 days anyway (as do a lot of us). Kelly is a wonderful agent and anyone would be lucky to have her! She no doubt knows who I am, and that we've interacted several times in the past three years. I harbor no malice towards her at all re: my ms OR for not liking cats. So if my ms is (I'm guessing) not her jam? Totes okay. Kelly - my apologies if anyone threw hate your way. FTR, I'm a dog-lover, too!

Peter_Jay- She said that large jungle cats are OK.

Y'all. Her tweet was in regard to "CATS" comps, from the play. I think it's safe to say she's not a fan of cat-centric stories but doesn't mind cat characters or cats being IN the manuscript.

Is this a total species rejection or does she just hate house cats? I mean, what if the cat is a large species companion?

I never knew “cat-hater” was a deal-breaker. But it kind of is a deal-breaker?
