Sometimes MS can make it difficult to care for yourself, so the thought of about caring for someone else can be daunting. I have three cats, and sometimes it can be a challenge to manage all of their needs. But in exchange for food, water, clean litter, and lots of love and cuddles, I receive huge benefits in return. My cats are playmates, confidants, calm influencers, and snuggle bears. They make me smile, and that alone helps my MS.
