By the article's title, I thought we would hear Lorcan speak either to the cat or to his mum. But still, a loely story.

Thanks Cher.....this is great that the cat has helped the little boy in ways that no one else could. Animals are amazing. I pray that Lorcan will continue to make progress and be able to start having conversations with people. God Bless them both!!!!

I believe animals are our teachers and the eyes and ears of God. They cannot speak so not to give away there mission. The cat looks similar to my ragdoll Cheyanne shown in my picture. They are very sweet, loyal cats. So glad this cat was able to break through where trained, professional medical Doctors could not. This is way the animals that visit those in hospitals are so beneficial to the patients. When my parents are in the hospital, they can't wait to get out to see their dog.
