The Cat's Out of the Bag is a het e-zine. The e-zine includes 12 stories and 14 art pieces, mainly photo-manips. It was designed to be read online.

From the editor:
"Welcome to 'The Cat's Out of the Bag' eZine. As the title (hopefully) suggests, this all sprung from the idea to have a fiction challenge where Smallville's intrepid reporter, Chloe Sullivan, found out that Clark Kent is a big, super-powered alien.

Well of course, Paperbkryter and Regina promptly talked me not into doing just another fiction challenge but a full-blown eZine with fiction, art, and any other miscellaneous ideas we could possibly come up with in the two month time frame.

Thus the "Chloe Knows" Project was born."
