If you are dealing with the loss of your beloved cat, read this book. You will laugh and cry, but at the end you will feel a sense of comfort. I'm so glad I sat down to read this. It was just what I needed after losing my 22 year old cat Regi a month ago. And I know when I am struggling, I can turn the pages again, and remind myself that she is with me forever.
After declaring herself a pretty pink princess during her first ballet class, Rachel dreamt of sugarplums and began pirouetting her way through life. While studying to become a ballerina, she compulsively read books under her covers by flashlight and scribbled in spiral-bound notebooks. The urge to tell stories culminated in her graduation from Columbia College Chicago with a B.F.A. in fiction writing.
Never one to keep her feet on the ground, she traveled the world from Prague to Cape Town. Once settled back in Queens, she dabbled in journalism before working as an Editorial Assistant for a medical publisher. Seeking a more fulfilling career, she earned her MAT from Queens College and currently works as an English teacher in an alternative program in NYC.
Rachel spends her time sipping coffee, trying to cook, and practicing her pirouettes. She currently resides in Freeport, Long Island.

It was time to find it again and the Billys weren't doing the trick.
