Our two cats Little Bit and Lacy can sometimes be my saving grace when I’m too sick to do anything. Lacy is our adopted outdoor cat that we cannot get to enter our home. She will come into the garage though.

If I’m in a bad flare and need to get something in the garage she’ll use that sense of knowing that I’m feeling awful and come over to me and rub up against my legs. This is very unusual Lacy behavior.

When I’m using my couch as my best friend or so sick that I’m in bed, Little Bit is curled up with me. He seems to know where I hurt and either avoids that area or if I need a some heat for sore muscles, he’s my heating pad.

I know lots of people with chronic illnesses that rely on pets to get through the rough times and to enjoy the good times. You can count me as one of them.

There are a lot of other people who love their furbabies on a Pet Social Network called Zootoo. You’ll find ways to donate money to local animal shelters and rescue groups. For every person that registers on their site one pound of pet food is donated to homeless pets. You can meet people by area, by pets in common and other similarities. There’s pet items to review, groups to join and events to learn about.

Everything you take part of on Zootoo helps pets! Joining is easy and being a part of this online network is a lot of fun too.
