Another day, another crazy cat lady story.
"The Reluctant Tarot Reader" told the story of Raven's struggle to embrace her intuitive gifts. In "Just Another Crazy Cat Lady Story", we join Raven in her 20s as she races around America with a broken heart after being rejected by the church and her sort-of girlfriend, and climbing onto the wild ride of what it means to be a lesbian. When she lands in Colorado for a short-lived attempt at grad school, Raven discovers what's missing from her life: a cat.
When she visits the local shelter, a tiny orange and white kitten named Avery grabs her finger and from that moment, they forge a friendship that lasts over 20 years and carries her through numerous breakups, the death of her mother, and the ever-present question, "When are you finally going to settle down?"
Avery and Zoey - a tough Brooklyn street cat who joins them four years into the journey - do their best to keep Raven tethered to earth as they travel cross-country in the quest for a little peace, love and a good home.
To some, a cat is just a cat. To this crazy cat lady, her two companions are part of the great evolution and healing of her soul. And when the time comes to say goodbye to Avery, Raven faces the true test of love: letting go.
