Animals and Autism

I have just listened to this fascinating item on today’s Woman’s Hour:

When Fraser met Billy the Cat

We talk to the mother whose autistic child found happiness and calm through his relationship with a rescue cat called Billy. Fraser’s tantrums and anxieties were overwhelming. His daily life was chaotic and normal daily events like mealtimes or bedtimes could trigger a meltdown. But with the cat by his side her son would immediately calm down. His mum Louise Booth tells Jenni how the presence of the cat has transformed all their lives.


If you are interested and have the opportunity, you can find this on BBC Radio i-player.


One of the many benefits of working at Boz’s Gaff is that I get the opportunity to listen to Woman’s Hour.
