When we lost our therapy kitty, Monty, we were devastated. Kate still wanders around the house asking, "You help me find cat, pwease?" It breaks our hearts. Our girls adored that cat and our house feels wrong without him. I firmly believe children should have pets. Pets teach children the boring things like responsibility but they also help children make connections and best of all they communicate without words just like so many of our children with autism. Eventually, when we are ready we will introduce another cat into our home. It seems impossible to believe he could be as cool as Monty; see video evidence of his coolness here, but we will give another kitty a chance.
