Hey I'm Ari. I'm 22, I live in Los Angeles, and I studied television at Emerson College. I like television, music, cows, food, conventions, and photography. Slowly turning into a crazy cat lady.
Last night I had an anxiety attack for the first time in months.
Thankfully, Archer was there to sit next to me and let me pet him for 30 minutes straight and I felt better. Attack was over. Things were in perspective. Symptoms faded. I felt at ease and in this little world where we just sat together and he made sure I was okay. And then he went back to doing cat things like licking himself and attacking fabric mice.
I really don’t know what I would do without him sometimes, I love this little furball being my little spoon, my alarm clock, my anxiety relief, and another ear to listen. I think adopting was one of the best decisions I’ve made in a long time. I truly love this guy and although it took some time, he definitely loves me back.
So if you can afford to properly care for an animal, have anxiety, and need support…get an animal.
Buh-bye hubcap and $50.
