When grad student Molly Lichtenwalner who suffers from anxiety disorder saw Otitis, the earless white cat, she immediately understood they were meant for each other. Otitis, whose former owners surrendered him after the cysts in his ears and the removal of his hearing organs made him deaf, couln’t have asked for a better owner – Molly used to have a deaf pup, and has her own ways when dealing with pets with special needs. She showered the poor thing with love – and the feline gave all that goodness back in return – and more…
“I was having severe anxiety as a result of a car accident… I decided it was time for me to adopt an animal to help with my anxiety, because nothing helped me more than snuggling some furry friends,” Molly told Love Meow. Otitis turned out to be the best emotional support cat Molly could have hoped for. The feline feels so grateful for being rescued, he wants to give Molly snuggles all the time!
Otitis knows how to help her when she’s really stressed or having a panic attack. “He is some times the only thing that can calm me down… He’s the best thing I ever did and he definitely rescued me, I didn’t rescue him.”
“Living with him is an absolute dream! He is the most loving, snuggly cat and he makes me feel so loved,” Molly told Bored Panda.
