The idea for this story came about when Stephen King's daughter's cat, Smuckey, was killed on the highway outside their home.
The role of Zelda, Rachael's dying sister, was played by a man. The role called for her to look emaciated, and apparently there were no women skinny enough.
7 cats were used to play the part of "Church."
