I hope he gets to keep them all!

Thanks for linking. I honestly do think we hugely underestimate the healing power of a nurturing connection with animals.

My mother has mental illness. And the only thing that gets her out of bed or from even killing herself is her cats.

My friend is prone to depression but since becoming a crazy cat man, he's been loads better. He's besotted with his catsgrin

Pets are brilliant. I saw a video of a very happy dog going down a slide today and it has had me smiling all day long.

Yes, he's the highlight of my twitter feed at the mo.

Lovely story and amazing pics!

How lovely, I hope he gets to keep them all too seeing as he’s been chosen.
