Cat & Boy Are Best Friends (Video)


Seven-year-old Lorcan has an anxiety disorder called selective mutism (SM), which makes it difficult for him to talk to other people outside of his home. At home, too, he has a hard time communicating his feelings to his family. Luckily, though, he has his friend, Jessi-Cat, as his loyal sidekick. Watch this interview with Lorcan’s mom, where she details how Jessi-Cat has helped the boy express his emotions. The duo are finalists in the National Cat Award’s “best friends” category award in their native UK!

You can tell by the smile on the boy's face, how he responds to and does love the cat.
