It is always amazing the impact of a family pet can have on a family. For one family living in England, a Coon cat named Tula has helped their daughter Iris Grace Halmshaw who is diagnosed with Severe Autism. They love doing things together each day. Thanks to her Mom who is a professional photographer and Tula, they discovered that Iris has a wonderful talent in painting along with drawing and doodling. Thanks to Tula and painting, Iris is connecting with the world better.
