Stray Cat "saves" autistic boy from silence

Please take time to read this rather lengthy but worth it article. Yet another reason we love cats and should encourage everyone to open their heart and home to a cat in need:

Lovely story. A good friend of mine has an autistic daughter, and he says her cat has done wonders for her too.

What a great story! Animals can really do wonders.

I saw a story on the news about a week ago where a young girl who previously couldn't be taken anywhere was now able to even go to Disneyland with her family thanks to their dog... she would follow the dog on a leash, kind of like she thinks she's walking it I suppose, but in reality the mother is guiding where the dog goes. It's just been fabulous for the family to be able to have their daughter go places with them, without kicking and screaming.
