This Cat Changed Her Little Human’s Life Forever And Now They Have An Unbreakable Bond!Ashley Maisano
Iris Grace Halmshaw, a six-year-old girl, was diagnosed with autism in 2011 when she was just two years old. She was very shy and had struggled to break out of her shell for a long time. That is, until she met her furry best friend. Thula, a two-year-old Maine coon cat, was brought home to Iris as a companion animal, and has since then completely transformed her life.
Thula helped Iris become more outgoing and has changed her life for the better. She is always by her side all day every day whether she’s playing, reading a book, or painting. Iris has learned to express herself through her artwork, which has even been purchased by Angelina Jolie! Iris didn't like things of a certain texture, such as water, which made bath time difficult. Amazingly enough, Thula is even right by Iris’ side in the water during every bath! They are the best of friends and their bond is definitely something special!
