I love cats
Yes, they are very healing & caring animals. They got your back!
Many many years ago, I remember we brought home our first cat, he went straight into hiding, and stayed hidden ALL day every day, so I gave up hope that we would bond. One day I came home severally depressed from work ( I had a bad day) I got in fetal position on the couch for a nap, and out of nowhere the cat comes out of hiding and jumps on my hip and lays there side to side with me. Ill never forget it, its like he found duty/job in comforting & healing me. Loved cats ever since.
