What a difference a kitten makes

      1 Comment on What a difference a kitten makes

Something happened today that has never happened before, at least that I can remember. 

Elliott took a 4 hour nap yesterday afternoon.  He’s never been relaxed enough to really do something like that.

He was snuggled up with his kitten, Dean, and sleeping away like a baby. I was actually quite amazed. Normally, if you even bring up the idea of a nap, Elliott will freak out.  However, with Dean snuggled up with him on his bed purring, Elliott was just out like a light. 

I’m really hoping that Dean with have a positive impact on him. If yesterday was any indication, this could indeed be very positive.

I also don’t mean this in the sense that it’s Dean’s job to make Elliott feel better. 

However, much like Bella helped Emmett, I’m hoping Dean has the same type of positive effect on Elliott.  In my experience, animals can have a tremendous impact on a child with #Autism. 

Bella brought Emmett out of his shell

I’m hoping that Dean and Elliott continue to grow a bond that can provide Elliott with companionship.

It really is amazing to see how different Elliott is when he’s with his new friend Dean. I really hope this continues.  🙂

I got Billy the dachshund from Craigslist. He was from Illinois and I met his mommy in St Louis at the Pet adoptions   at PetSmart on Telegraph Road run by my director Alice Dodge. She had Billy in her arms and he was adorable all happy, friendly, sweet and I had hoped to get him adopted that day. She realized what I had planned and said she would only give him to me if I kept him, so there I was with two dogs at home 200 miles away and now a third. I promised her and took him.… Read more »
