Hi Cat Lover,
I reported in today's Kitty Times that a boy has been helped with his
communication difficulties by the family cat. His condition is called
"selective mutism," which is an anxiety disorder and not part of the
complex issues associated with autism, though it's possible in other
cases...just not this one.
Be sure to watch the video to see the family and their wonderful cat,
Jessi-cat. She's beautiful and very good about being on TV.
