I am considering adopting a cat in the near future and was wondering if any of you find that it helps with dealing with the pain, having a pet as a companion. I am an animal lover and feel that even when no one around you is there or understands what your going thru, an animal is always your best friend. I never had a cat as a pet before only dogs, but I heard cats are easier to care of. No standing/walking the dog in the cold winter for one thing. I love dogs, but think it would be nice to adopt a cat for a change. It would be a new experience. Do any of you find it too hard taking care of a pet with the fibro? Or, do you find that it helps with dealing with the fibro much better? I read an article on how having a pet helps a person who is ill and relieves stress. Just wondering if anyone has any advice. Thank you and God Bless!
