Living with an eating disorder is horrible, it comes with really tough times, a lot of emotions and physical side effects. During my battles with mental illness my cats have been extremely comforting.
Hard nights can always be alleviated a bit with a cat by my side. I missed my cats so much when I was in hospital and they’re another reason to stay out of there.
Seeing my cats during my brief day leave was lovely too and a motivator for sure. My cats and all pets, provide comfort, a companion and ever lasting love — I’d never be able to live a life without pets.
