How This Cat Helps A Little Girl With Autism Live Her Life To The Fullest

Autism is a hard condition to live with.  It prevents many people from living life normally and limits the capacity for people to express their lives normally.

Iris was just 4-years old when she was diagnosed with autism in December 2011. Everyone feared she would never be able to live life normally.  Iris struggled with expressing herself, showing affection, communicating and even social interactions.

Iris struggled to live normally with her Autism, but her parents knew they had to do something, so they brought home a new friend!

They brought him a new family friend, Thula, a Maine Coone cat!  This cat ended up being more then just a best friend and pet, but a true miracle…
