Sam and her Emotional-Support Cat, Black Puss
"Black Puss is essentially a support animal for my mental health. Without her I would feel isolated. It has strongly affected my well-being knowing that Black Puss is safe, healthy, and taken care of.
Thank you for helping me give Black Puss a pain free life and worry free for me."
