Loving Animals

Kitty

My beautiful baby boy.

One of the best things I’ve ever done for myself is to get a cat. He calms me down when feeling anxious. Sometimes when I’m feeling manic, he comes and sits on my lap and I’m reluctant to move him because he’s sleeping. I also use him to check for hallucinations. If I see something, I throw a toy in its direction. If my cat notices it on his way to fetch the toy, that means it’s real. If he passes by it, then I know that it’s a hallucination. It’s not a fool-proof method, but in my experience, it works. You can check out where to find local shelter animals at Petfinder.com
