About Rachel

Rachel Shubin began "We Have a Situation"/Sandpiper Cat Blog in 2011, after she took in a pregnant foster cat, named Sandpiper - Piper for short. During the first night of fostering, at only 40 days along, Piper miscarried her kittens. Rachel nursed Piper back to health, and Piper never left the house or Rachel's heart!

Even though Rachel's family adopted Piper, Rachel continues her blog today, to chronicle her cat related life, product reviews and giveaways, as well as cat lifestyle topics that she finds interesting.

Piper came to the family through Lost Dog and Cat Rescue Foundation, a rescue that Rachel, her mom, dad and brother, have been volunteered with from 2005-2014. Rachel's family spent many a Friday night at PetSmart, volunteering to get cats adopted out. Currently, Rachel volunteers for Animal Outreach of Cape May County when she is up in New Jersey.

Rachel was a senior in high school when she started Sandpiper Cat Blog. Rachel graduated cum laude from George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia, in 2016. She studied Communication with a concentration in journalism.
