Cat helps boy say ‘I love you’

A fluffy cat named Jessi-cat is now on the front page of international magazines and media for helping her owner express his emotion. Lorcan
Dillon (the cat’s owner) is a 7-year-old boy from Davyhulme, Greater Manchester who suffers
from an anxiety condition that makes it almost impossible for him to
communicate or express emotion.

 But that all began to change when his
mother, Jayne, brought home a cream-colored Birman cat named Jessi-cat a
couple of years ago.
Lorcan
bonded strongly with Jessi-cat, and as a result, he’s better able to
show affection.

In the last couple of weeks, Jayne said,
he’s “started communicating with people he doesn’t know very well and
even reads to one of the teachers now,” which he hasn’t done before
(aw!). And he’s started saying “I love you” for the first time. Awwww! Jayne
noted that cuddling and spending time with the cat is a way for Lorcan
“to express his emotions that otherwise he wouldn’t be able to do.”
