You know when people say "cat lady" like it's a bad thing? Well, Hannah Shaw doesn't see it that way. As a kitten rescuer, humane educator, and author, the 31-year-old has dedicated her life to protecting animals. Her project, Kitten Lady, helps educate animal shelters on how best to save and care for orphan kittens through workshops, consulting services, and more. She co-operates Orphan Kitten Club, a charitable organisation that provides rescue and adoption services to orphan kittens in the San Diego area, with her partner, Andrew Marttila. On top of all that, she has a children's book, Kitten Lady's Big Book of Little Kittens, coming out this year.
Badass Fact: The amazing empire she's currently building all started when she found a kitten stuck in a tree in her hometown of Philadelphia. Long story short: she saved its life, adopted it, and named it Coco.
