This is Simba. We all say our pets are like family but he really is.
From the day he came home as a fluffy bundle of love he imprinted on my youngest son Kian who had been born seriously premature leaving him with numerous health problems including heart and lung problems. Simba quickly and independently learnt to alarm us as to when Kian was having breathing difficulties and would often alert us before the episode meaning we had time to have help in place and essentially save Kian's life.
Later on when it became increasingly apparent that Kian had social and learning difficulties in the form of Autism Simba yet again stepped in to help Kian through his darkest times. When Kian self harms Simba stops him by placing his paws on Kian's hands. When Kian goes in to shut down and won't interact with any of us or leave the house or even drink Simba sits on his head or next to him and calms him. He takes Kian to bed every night and stays with him until he falls asleep and rushes to him when he wakes-without Simba Kian struggles to sleep! He even comes on holiday with us!
Devastatingly Simba was ran over on 9th October 2017. His front left leg totally degloved and with a broken ulnar. His left with multiple fractures and serious damage to his toes. He has had numerous operations to rebuild his legs and skin grafts. All the time purring away and never ever being in bad spirits. Kian and I have made the 250mile round trip nearly every day so they can be together. Simba visibly lifting in spirit and heart when they are reunited. Kian often falling asleep with him on the vets table and cuddling up to him.
Simba is at the forefront of every decision and we would never ever do anything thst we felt he couldn't deal with and if his spirits ever drop we will do what is kindest for him.
We have paid lots of bills so far and are selling our car and I'm petrified of heights but am looking at doing a sponsored jump of some kind but we are now at the end of funds.

    I applaud your efforts with Simba, and I'm so happy to see the bond between him and your son. It's magical. I know how hard it is to maintain such constant care, and the psychological stress involved.

I am the mum of the most incredible young man who finds the world a scary place but the incredible bond he has with his cat means he has a coping mechanism and can function in day to day life a little easier
