Description
Cats are loners, and Billi is no exception. He wanders through the ancient Indian countryside among other animals, enjoying a sense of freedom. Holiday season approaches; the Monsoon, when the skies go dark and the rains come, has arrived. At a time when everyone is eager to be home with family and friends, Billi is alone-and lonely. Walking into a village, Billi gazes through windows and sees a cozy fire, a content dog, a happy family with children. Inspired, an untamed soul begins the transformative journey to a new life of warmth and togetherness. With his inimitable storytelling gifts and unparalleled ability to penetrate the feline psyche, Jeffrey Masson captures Billie's aloofness, mischievousness, and ultimately his new perspective on the deep connection shared by humans and their feline friends.
