Cats in therapy? Really? Aren’t cats the most serene, laid-back creatures on earth? Don’t they just lie around, zoom for two hours, eat a little, kill a catnip mouse, then go back to lying around? Alas, no. They are complicated, even fragile creatures. Here, 16 cats have sought help from therapists for a variety of emotional ills. Consider ALISTAIR who has flame-thrower feelings for his mother. Or COCOA, who does not feel good unless she’s tweeting or messaging. Or CHLOE whose washing OCD is out of control. Or SUE ELLEN whose agoraphobia won’t let her go out and lie in the flower garden. All these cats are stuck in their lives and have come for help to their therapists: let’s listen as they bare their souls.
