Annie Rimmer-Weeks (Actor, Writer, Producer) After many failed New Years resolutions in December of 2014 she decided to create a fun and attainable goal. Her idea was to wear something with a cat on it everyday for an entire year. Some friends enthusiastically supported this challenge while others changed their phone numbers. Since then Annie has collected far to many (ugly and cute) cat related items, a fiery rescue cat, and is now launching a cat related web-series. She hopes you enjoy watching Evil Cat as much as she had fun making it. And if you don't then she will sic her cat on you!
Erin Lehn (Actor) Erin is an actor, writer and digital media producer who also happens to adore cats, but not as obsessively as her dear friend Annie. However, she has been accused of loving her former feline friends more than people in her life. She admits there could be some truth in that. When she's not assuring Annie that her cat is not trying to kill her, she can often be found on her yoga mat in downward dog pose--much to the chargrin of neighborhood cats.

Jayne Stevens (Actor/Animal Support Group) Jayne is looking forward to meeting new cats on this project. She has enjoyed the company of felines since a young age. Her first cat was Keeli, who ultimately sealed her fate by standing under a slamming garage door. Her current favorite furry friend is Elvira, who was named after a ghost and enjoys jumping out and menacing small children at every opportunity.
Josh Belville (Actor/Animal Support Group) Josh is an actor and writer. He has a cat named Jowers who looks like Grumpy Cat, but she's more like Neurotic Cat. She also loves to lick phone charger cables. Why? Why does she do this? Josh does not know. He was okay with it until she chewed one cable up, which caused it to stop charging his phone, which nearly made him late for work one day because the phone died while he was asleep. He keeps telling Jowers to stop licking the cables but she won't, because she's a cat. She also pees on his bed sometimes when she's anxious--look, anyway, Josh is an actor and he is very happy to have worked with Annie on this marvelous project!
